Within the debate it is heavily discussed how designers could implement these theories into their practical work but not many answers can be found.
For this project, different aspects of design theories were extracted and made into a 10 paragraph manifesto, a document outlining the framework for a series of design experiments. Using the setting of a design studio as a practice based research tool, the project tries to examine the adaptability and relevance of the idealistic expectations that are posed towards the designer, while keeping a playful view within the research process itself.
