Skill City: Reflactive Craftsmanship as Eco-social Design, Henk Oosterling


Oosterling opened the day with a mental exercise around the notion of ‘reflaction’, in which reflection meets action, and words are coupled to deeds. Drawing on the Premsela lectures by Richard Sennet (Out of Touch, 2011) and himself (Dasein as Design, 2009), Oosterling will unfold the idea of a ‘skillcity’, and discuss its ethical, social, and economic implications. In his view, the attitude needed in design today is one of material and relational consciousness.
