A broader definition of design

A broader definition of design

Because we are a part of Georgia Tech, technology is an essential part of our work, as is research. We use the design process to develop new technologies, anticipate the future of buildings and environments, and change the way people experience art, things and their immediate surroundings.

Unlike traditional art and design schools, we consider design as the intersection between technology and how we engage in the world. We regularly dig into the science behind what is clearly an art elsewhere. We draw the connection between design and technology, emphasizing human experiences, from products and soundscapes, to living in buildings and cities.

Our design research encompasses today's most pressing human and built environment issues, from accessibility, sustainability, and smart cities, to ground-breaking efforts in spatial analysis and music technology.
