Situating Design in Alberta

Situating Design in Alberta makes the case that design has the potential to drive economic growth, improve quality of life, and promote sustainability in the province and across the country. Contributors bring both scholarly and practice-based perspectives and come from diverse disciplines including architecture, interior design, industrial design, and visual communications. The collection is organized around four main topics—history, education, business, and sustainability—within which the authors explore a wide range of issues. This synergy of different design approaches lends a sense of forward momentum to the field, stimulates reflection about opportunities and challenges for both practitioners and policy makers, and provides a model for future studies in other regions.

Contributors: Tim Antoniuk, Ken Bautista, Carlos Fiorentino, Maria Goncharova, Andrea Hirji, Mark Iantkow, Barry Johns, Lyubava Kroll, Courtenay McKay, Skye Oleson-Cormack, Isabel Prochner, Janice Rieger, Elizabeth Schowalter, Megan Strickfaden, Tyler Vreeling, Ron Wickman

"To situate design reveals a context of values. It's in discussing the Alberta context that [Situating Design in Alberta] opens other ways of measuring design, ones in which underrepresented voices are elevated and the designer has a role as an advocate and a listener." amery Calvelli, Alberta Views, November 2022
