Systems Oriented Design

The designerly way to work with systems

The main mission of Systems Oriented Design is to build the designers own interpretation and implementation of systems thinking so that systems thinking can fully benefit from design thinking and practice and so that design thinking and practice can fully benefit from systems thinking.

At a lecture for the students of Michael Hensels wood studio I mapped wood as a material system together with the students. The media was the good old black board and the shown map emerged during two hours of conversation with the students. The mapping shows only selected parts of the whole complexity of the production, applicaiton and recycling of wood as a building material. But it gives a good hint to how vastly complex and interconnected one system is with the other. Especially the amount of fossile fuel based processes in the produciton and application of wood are mind provoking.

There is a very special feel to the good old black board which several of my collegues enjoy as well. I hope it never disappears.
