World Design Capital San Diego Tijuana Campus Convening on Dec 9th

Submit Your Project and Participate in the Design to Action Convening on Dec 9th

Contribute to the World Design Capital San Diego Tijuana 2024 Legacy Program

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to submit your project and join our first San Diego-Tijuana World Design Capital 2024 Campus Convening on December 9, 2022, held at the UCSD Design Lab in the Design and Innovation building between 2.00-5.00pm.

The Design Lab at UC San Diego is a founding partner of World Design Capital 2024 program and is leading the Legacy Program, which involves the curation of legacy projects. As part of WDC 2024 legacy programming strategy, we intend to identify, assess, select, and resource multinational legacy programs ensuring that the designation catalyzes and accelerates meaningful design transformation in our transborder, multinational region.

During the bid and site visit phases, some preliminary community outreach and engagement was conducted, which identified potential initiatives/programs. However, it is imperative during this new phase of implementation that potential, current, and new research-action projects are identified within the regional network, to include colleagues in San Diego and Tijuana in order to leverage the skills and talents at our academic institutions. 

The above will be known as the Design 2 Action Initiative.

Via this form, we are providing an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students within our region to share summary details about their research and community engaged projects so that we can:

  • Connect: Understand the landscape of what work has already been done, what is on the horizon, and how to create synergies between stakeholders;
  • Catalyze: Create engagement and accelerate action from connecting a network of researchers, practitioners, and decision-makers; and 
  • Communicate: Share progress and solicit feedback to ensure meaningful progression and to scale impact.

What do we need from you?

Smart Streetlights Data San Diego

San Diegans Shouldn’t Be Lab Rats for Innovation

Voice of San Diego Editorial by Design Lab Faculty Lilly Irani

In 2016, San Diego installed thousands of General Electric cameras, microphones and telecommunication devices on streetlights around the city. The City Council approved the project with little investigation, looking no further than the city’s casting of the project as environmental “sensors” and “nodes” that would analyze traffic and the atmosphere.

The city finally held town halls this year to explain the program to communities, but by then it was too late. Once installed, technologies of this type will outrun the uses for which they are designed and publicly justified. Over and over, researchers like myself have seen data creep — like mission creep — take hold as companies try to add value to data and monetize them.
