1DD: how to positively impact with design
HOFFMANN: “Dare to challenge assumptions about material and social reality, openup prospects and prepare action.”
"I believe in design that engages in social issues, in a collaborative design practiced by an anthropological look with its transdisciplinary nature addressing complex problems of making with codesign and design anthropology.
As doers, we should appreciate the local cultures and knowledge. Listen and think, truly, with people. Designing for diversity. Thinking in order to save space and materials ensuring to people accessible services and products.
We need to take our responsibility about our social role as designers and understand our project in the world, as part of it - from its raw materials to the way it continues its social life. Minimize environmental impact and maximize the project's social gain is our duty."
