Design science was introduced in 1963 by R. Buckminster Fuller, who defined it as a systematic form of designing. The Design Science Symposium is from Jan 31-Feb 2 at RISD and will explore whole systems thinking, scientific rigor, nature’s underlying principles, mathematical patterns, geometric construction, and more. Several leaders in diverse fields such as education, public policy, design, engineering, biomimicry, and architecture will present workshops, lectures, and keynotes.
