The seminar kicks off with a report and reflection on MDG 2016-17 experiments with ‘imaginary (or utopia) as method’, incl. research as well as urban mobilities design teaching activities. After this presentation you are invited to take part in a quick experimental design workshop, using the Hundelev research-by-design project (a research project by Lea Holst Laursen, Ditte Bendix Lanng and research intern Chrysavgi Konstanti) as a workshop case.
