Designing for the Future presents exciting new work by graduates from Scotland’s four renowned schools of art. Showcasing concepts designed in response to issues around sustainability, health, education and equality, this new generation of designers is represented by projects selected from the 2011 degree shows at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Edinburgh College of Art, Gray’s School of Art and The Glasgow School of Art.
Design education in Scotland enables graduates to engage with the social challenges of everyday life and this exhibition demonstrates how designers are actively participating in shaping the world around them. Alongside this showcase of Scottish-trained talent are architectural designs for V&A at Dundee, a new international centre of design for Scotland to be housed in a world-class building on Dundee’s waterfront. Together the designs on display highlight the important role of Scotland’s institutions in both inspiring and developing contemporary design talent.
