This one-day symposium in anticipation of the upcoming XXII Triennale, Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival, features four chapters—Restorative Design, Magic Pragmatism, Complex Systems, and Long-term Attitude—that act as investigative angles for the exhibition. The XXII Triennale will present design approaches that encourage a multifaceted and comprehensive reading of the issues threatening our collective existence; stimulate an appreciation of the systems in which individuals live and operate; and galvanize attitudes that consider life beyond the next few generations. This event, gathering an international group of designers, architects, scientists, curators, and thinkers from diverse backgrounds, will offer a dynamic exchange of opinions on these issues through presentations, panel conversations, video contributions, and keynote lectures.
