“Candy Chang is a designer, urban planner and artist in Helsinki. She likes to make the city more accessible and engaging through research, design, and the creative use of public space.”
There are some really interesting projects over at her site that cross disciplines between community awareness/advocacy, technology, urban planning and design/art. I wish more designers thought along these lines, it makes for some very exciting results. I think some of these same projects could make for some interesting assignments in design schools.
