The Design Futures Lab 10×10 symposium is an online symposium that imagines the future of design. Design researchers of diverse persuasions reflect upon the last ten years in their respective fields, and they imagine the changes that might be seen in the next ten. These 3–5 minute videos capture designerly vignettes of the near future from a global perspective. The presentations are pitched to a non-expert and inquiring audience.
