Design Institute Established by Two Well Known Design Institutes
The Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology and Shenzhen Industrial Design Profession Association co established a design institute that will be launched today in a ceremony at the Civic Center. The Shenzhen Institute of Innovation Design will be the city’s first international high end design academy that will integrate research, education and services.
The institute will also set up a simulation design center, a solution development center and product-testing center this year. The institute is also in cooperation with internationally known design institutes, such as the Parsons the New School for design in the US that will be offering international training and long distance education on technology, teaching and design management. Also four research center will be established in the next three years focusing interactive experience center focusing on color design, material application center process, technology utilization center studying green industrial process, knowledge application center that will promote intellectualization of life, design and production.
Design schools in Western countries usually stress interdisciplinary education and practice which the institute lacks. The Shenzhen Institute for Innovative Design was also established to help make up for the deficiency and is hoped to be a key generator of talented, innovative design professionals.
