Helping designers to work outside of hierarchies: Towards a scholarship of "design meshworking"
Journal article, 2011
This article outlines some features of a proposed research field that studies “meshworked” design processes. Starting out from a Deleuze- and DeLanda-informed analysis of economic life, the text outlines the “meshwork” as a mode of organisation that differs from the traditional organisational hierarchy. The article then contrasts a traditional design organisation with examples of meshworked design projects, and concludes with a brief note on the potential of future studies of “Design Meshworking”.
