As the interaction between users, organizations and ecosystems becomes more complex every day, exploring new design contexts becomes increasingly important.
This research area aims to give space to and explore the grey areas of design research that have received scant attention to date but represent potentially valuable avenues of investigation. This could include exploratory or emerging themes linked to phenomena such as urbanization and smart cities, regeneration issues, digitalization and similar. This area is open to exploratory topics, imaginative contexts and novel methodologies.
