Conference Design and Evolution

Delft University of Technology and the Henri Baudet Institute are proud to host the 2006 Design History Society Conference. For the first time since the founding in 1977, the Design History Society has rewarded the organisation of the Annual Conference to an institute outside the UK. We have chosen Design and Evolution as a leading theme for the Conference06

The Design History Society Conference 2006 will take the opportunity to research and discover new directions, and explore the possibilities and limitations of the concept of evolution as an explanatory principle for changes in design.
