Background and objectives

The Núcleo de Abordagem Sistêmica do Design (NAS DESIGN), is a design research laboratory at the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, and was officially founded in 2009. The research group conducts investigations and discussions involving a systemic approach of design in order to spread the understanding of their new theoretical and practical dimensions. Thereby, the design is viewed as a holistic process, shifting the focus from the product to the local productive system and considering the complex interactions of communities.

The aim of NAS Design is to promote systemic design solutions to community needs, providing support to local initiatives and, through a co-creation process of mutual learning, setting the stakeholders in an active position, expressing their identities and skills freely as well as developing a sustainable social conscience.

Primary research areas and activities

  • Systemic Approach ofDesign
  • CreativeCommunities
  • TraditionalLocal Communities
  • ResponsibleDesign
  • Sustainable Design
  • Eco-design
  • Sustainability

 The activities developed in the laboratory are theoretical and practical, based on Methodologies of literature review, action research and systemic approach to the development of strategy. The literature review allows the knowledge of theoretical concepts in order to analyze its applicability. The use of action research, in turn, justified the action of outside researchers and designers active in the community co-creating design solutions.
