CUMULUS Roma 2021

JUNE 8TH-10TH, 2021

Cumulus is the only global association to serve art and design education and research. It was founded in 1990 and has today over 280 prominent university members from 56 countries. It is a forum for partnership and transfer of knowledge and best practices with the aim to build and maintain a dynamic and flexible academic scene that would bring together top-level educational institutions from all parts of the world. 

Co-organised by the Faculty of Architecture and School of Industrial Design from the Sapienza University of Rome, the theme of the event Design Culture(s) has undoubtedly an international appeal because it is addressing the challenges of our time and the city of Rome is the ultimate place to embody such quality: it’s notoriously a rich city for history and tradition, but also an important global capital, which is projected towards the future. It’s a cosmopolitan and multicultural city, which treasures a multitude of concepts and visions. In such a scenario, which is rich in history and culture, attendees are also invited to visit and learn about a city of great interest.

Our partners from Escola Massana and Trinity College Dublin, David Hernández Falagán, Andreu Belsunces, and Kevin Koidl, presented the paper “Consensual (Design) Fictions: co-creating iterative use cases to define technology conceptualization”. 

The presentation was done on Wednesday 9 June at 11:10am within the Artificial Session devoted to Digital, Technology and Robotics.
