1.2 RESEARCH QUESTION
Due to the previous concerns, my research question is:
‘What constitutes the practice of a designer that assumes the role of a Pro-Am within the setting of a City Lab concerning ecology (wicked problem) and what are the consequences for design education?’
-What constitutes the practice of a designer that operates outside the traditional field of expertise in a City Lab?
-What do these new practices imply for design education?
-Does this have an implication for the pedagogical framework?
-Does it require a new application for the pedagogical framework?
These questions therefore provide a context to fully explore the context of the position of the designer within both academy and within the vital ecological contexts of our planet.
