Design Academy Eindhoven

Socratic Design and strategic Workshop


The Socratic method was used to make explicit the tacit knowledge of the craftsmen in the academy. It realised a strong communicative team that developed future scenario. The lab method was also used to recreate the dialog between the crafts departments and the board of the academy. The dialog guarantees an optimal climate of listening in which new information is possible. Different layers in any hierarchical organisation can join hands in making future plans.
