designing
as a process of
self-actualisation

*designing-centered design*

wishes to be a creative process that brings the attention back to the act of designing, and to creativity as an act of self expression and self discovery

anything we do changes us, so while we design the outer world, we consciously contemplate the changes in our inner world

experiment with us

spirituality

spirituality is also closely associated with relationships, peace, joy, justice, and a unified sense of body and soul. These are all things we design for

contemplation

contemplation is an integrative and immersive process whose outcomes are unpredictable and uncertain.

a spiritual practice is not pursued through reasoning or discursive analytical thoughts, or knowledge

creativity

pirituality is not only part of every human being, but should be pursued by designers specifically, not only because as “creators” of new propositions we have a responsibility to what we create, but also because creativity itself is the very essence of spirituality

economic sustainability

environmental sustainability

social sustainability

SPIRITUAL sustainability
