The Speculative Design major teaches open-ended creative thinking, debating values, possibilities and outcomes, understanding human contexts and mobilizing interests, and exploring ambiguous problems in an unexpected way. Speculative Design is a 21st century mix of art, science, and emerging technology focused on aesthetic, entrepreneurial and activist intervention. Bringing together laboratory and field research in a creative studio setting, Speculative Design works from nano to urban scales to stimulate new ideas and solutions.
