2006 Oslo

Seminar title: Connecting fields. Does cross-pollination work?
When: May 10-12, 2006
Where: Oslo, Oslo School of Architecture and Design 

When designers double as researchers they often find that other professional and/or research fields provide most valuable insights and inputs difficult to find within one’s own area of expertise. Is cross-pollination what is needed to bring the budding design research to flower?

What were the missing items you chose to adopt and import: a term, a concept, an idea, a method, an approach, a perspective, or still something else? What are the downsides and dangers in connecting fields? Are there any warnings or recommendations to make?
