Abstract

A design education program must unite traditionally siloed disciplines, spanning rigid academic boundaries from engineering to social sciences. Work to establish the Kyoto University Design School had to meet these challenges in promoting interdisciplinary cooperation and provides a solid model for others to build on. The web extra at https://youtu.be/bTWoIew-lpg features interviews and further details about Kyoto University Design School's innovative curriculum.
