Service logic for shaping future living environment, Tongji-Aalto Postgraduate Seminar on Sustainable Design

Welcome to Tongji-Aalto Postgraduate Seminar on Sustainable Design
——Service logic for shaping future living environment

Date: 7th October 2016
Time: 9:30-11:30 / 13:30-15:00
Venue: Aalto Design Factory

Our living environment is changing. It shifts from the conditions that are dominated by the idea of well-being shaped by unsustainable consumerism toward the ones consisting of new networks on both built and social levels. A new idea, defined as service-dominant logic, is emerging. The structural changes give rise to the need of establishing new built and social environments that are able to foster new and sustainable behaviors.

On 7th October, Tongji University and Aalto University will co-hold a one-day seminar themed “Service logic for shaping future living environment” in Aalto Design Factory. The primary aim of this seminar is to provide a forum for the postgraduate students (PhD, DA and MA) from two universities to present their work and exchange ideas.

Therefore, this seminar welcomes case studies and research projects on methodological and theoretical investigation relating to the theme from various disciplines.
