Overview

Where does interaction design come from? What foundations are relevant today? In this book, internationally renowned scholars and designers explore how the avant-garde ambitions of the 1920-30s Bauhaus to re-align new technology with emerging social needs combines with a more contemporary sensitivity to participation and the social creativity inherent in the modern digital design materials.

"These creators of the Digital Bauhaus pose here the key questions for our profession and our society and they offer thought-provoking avenues for each reader to follow."
Terry Winograd, editor of "Bringing Design to Software"

"The papers together explore the possibilities for creating an 'aesthetic-technical production orientation' that recontextualizes technology as skilled practice, as always political, and as best created through sustained engagements among people, and between people and things."
Lucy Suchman, author of "Plans and Situated Action"
