Design Anthropology in Context

Design Anthropology in Context

This book explores the broad territory of design anthropology, covering key approaches, ways of working and areas of debate and tension. It understands design as fundamentally human-centered and argues for design anthropology based primarily on collaboration and communication. Adam Drazin suggests the most important collaborative knowledge which design anthropology develops is heuristic, emerging as engagements between fieldwork sites and design studios. The chapters draw on material culture literature and include a wide range of examples of different projects and outputs. Highlighting the importance of design as a topic in the study of contemporary culture, this is valuable reading for students and scholars of anthropology and design as well as practitioners.
