Designing Solutions to Wicked Problems: A Manifesto for Transdisciplinary Research and Design

Impressed by the deep thinking behind this manifesto from 2009.

“Proceedings from the Designing Solutions to Wicked Problems symposium held on the 9th and 10th November 2009 at the Melbourne Town Hall with a compendium of provocations and commentaries. (…) We can aspire to design that contributes to a more sustainable future that delights the eye and the soul, and that transforms the everyday as much as it does the uncommon. Design at its essence is focused on the creation of meaning and solutions. To focus on those problems for which no easy solutions have yet been found is the true challenge which great design should meet.”
