Rethinking Design Journalism?

As a design student, I have always wondered why just 3% of the world’s buildings are designed by professionally qualified architects? Why does media discussion mostly focus on designers and designed goods? Why is the voice of the consumer and collaborators in the design process missing? And, what can we do to bring forth these hidden voices? 

 

Could one way be to change how architecture and design is written about in the dominant media? 

 

This activity invites you to think about some of these questions and share your thoughts on “how else” design could be written about in the media.

The V&A/RCA History of Design MA is offered jointly by the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Royal College of Art. It encourages interdisciplinary, innovative and critical approaches to the history of design across a range of mediums, places and times. Students work closely with the collections and curators at the V&A, as well as participating in the creative community at the RCA.
