"Design Commons - Practices, Processes and Crossovers" by Gerhard Bruyns and Stavros Kousoulas

Dr Ir Gerhard Bruyns, Associate Professor of PolyU Design and his co-author Stavros Kousoulas have recently published the book "Design Commons - Practices, Processes and Crossovers".  This book directly links the notion of the commons with different design praxes, and explores their social, cultural, and ecological ramifications. It draws out material conditions in four areas of design interest: social design, commons and culture, ecology and transdisciplinary design. As a collection of positions, the diversity of arguments advances the understanding of the commons as both concepts and modes of thinking, and their material translation when contextualised in the domain of design questions. In other words, it moves abstract social science concepts towards concrete design debates. This text appeals to students, researchers and practitioners working on design in architecture, architecture theory, urbanism, and ecology. Keywords • Design Commons • Commoning Practices • Commoning Processes • Commons Crossovers • Ecological Thinking • Alternative Economies • Urban Movements • Digital Commons • hacktivism and design • transdisciplinarity and design • spatial commoning Editors Gerhard Bruyns and Stavros Kousoulas, with contributions from Dorina Pllumbi, Maria Reitano, Nikolaus Gartner, Chun Zheng, Daniel Elkin, Leung Chi-Yuen, Wang Xiao Lu, Frank Bauer, Lasse Sehested Skafte, Gert van der Merwe, Nicholas Frayne, Markus Wernli, Piero Medici, Liana Psarologaki, Stamatis Zografos, Dora Karadima, Katharina Moebus, Lőrinc Vass, Roy Cloutier and Nicole Sylvia. The book is now available at Springer>>
