Others Association of Design Departments and Schools in Japanese Public Universities Yearbook 2020『Design Academia』

Association of Design Departments and Schools in Japanese Public Universities was formed in 2019 by design departments and graduate schools in Japanese public universities. These design departments and graduate schools in Japanese public universities have joined forces to collaborate toward the goals of the improvement and development of design education and research. In March 2021, Association of Design Departments and Schools in Japanese Public Universities released Design Academia, its 2020 yearbook summarizing the activities of the universities which participate in the association.

The first half of Design Academia covers innovative initiatives and educational curricula of member universities, as well as the composition of the organization. It also includes a report on the 2nd Association of Design Departments and Schools in Japanese Public Universities Conference held in November 2020. For this fiscal year’s booklet, we look at a symposium on the theme of “COVID-19 and the New Lifestyle.” Meanwhile, in the discussion segment, you can read about the latest trends in design studies in the context of society today, as well the vision that each university is aiming for.The second half introduces the Kyushu University Innovative Design Center, which publishes Design Academia, and describes its forthcoming efforts.

Design Academia is the first book which affords a comprehensive view of the unique character of design departments and schools in universities throughout Japan. We hope that it will be a useful resource for young people aspiring to a university design department or graduate school, as well as for businesses and organizations considering collaboration or joint research with university design departments and graduate schools.
