Question 3

Like development aid, much design for development has been increasingly criticised for not having real, sufficient, diverse or lasting value for the people it is intended for. Ambitiously, Victor Margolin (2007, p.115) imagines a design-based future for developing countries: "Design for development needs to broaden its brief from an emphasis on poverty alleviation to include the strategic creation of products for export."

Ilse Oosterlaken (2009, p.100) equates most designs for development that use a `participatory' process as having a limited, user-centred approach; and suggests instead an approach which she calls ‘capability sensitive design’. Do you agree or disagree with the author’s claims? Research three recent examples of capability-sensitive design from one or more design disciplines – architecture, urban planning, or industrial, communication, multi- media, digital design or PSS – that improves the lives of poor people in developing countries. One design should be sourced by a designer/s from a developing country. Discuss aspects of each example’s potential for real, sufficient, diverse and lasting value for the targeted users and the makers where is it made/built in a developing nation. Find exciting examples - do not use examples extensively discussed in class or already used in Tasks.
