Values in Design

Values play an integral role in design: they inform the kinds of trade-offs the make when considering different solutions; they create a basis for assessing a particular artifact or system may fit into their lives; and they are an important part of negotiating common understanding in collaborative design settings. Work in this project area focuses on the various ways values become expressed through the design of artifacts and systems.
