Routine, Regulation and Evaluation in Design
A Two-Day Symposium: 12-13 July
The Leeds School of Architecture, Landscape and Design
Leeds Metropolitan University
Leeds LS2 8BQ
This Symposium is the second event of a project that looks at the role of
audit culture, measurement, evaluation, routine, performance indicators,
reporting, systemization and accountability in design … all those things
that are said to dog ‘true’ creativity and yet are omnipresent.
Invited speakers will analyse both the issues of policy and political
economy that drive this effect and the everyday actions of designers within
this ‘other side’ of creative practice.
Speakers are drawn nationally and internationally, from both academia and
professional practice. They represent a broad range of design disciplines
from exhibition and cinema design to urban design and graphics.
