Description

Outside the Skin: systems approaches to society's larger structural issues, takes a whole-systems look into the mechanisms behind the production of the built environment (read currency, power and influence). Organized around systems of Doubt, Indeterminacy and Synchronicity, the messy topics of self-interest, cooperation and coordination are framed within five rational game-theoretic games developed by social scientist and Nobel Laureate in Economics, Elinor Ostrom. Intent on presenting a novel systems-wide approach to thesis originality, the work aims to be a resource positioning a critical stance in relation to questions of social justice and equity within design research.
