Abstract

This paper presents student projects realised as parts of design history and theory courses which have been under development in new, design-related university departments in Greece. An outline of the state of design and design education in Greece is first provided. In this context, the ideas behind the projects' brief are explained and some of the outcomes are discussed. Open-ended, self-defined student projects are proposed as a way to approach the multiplicity of meanings afforded by industrially produced objects. Some of the resulting student work is discussed and evaluated. It appears that the project-based approach described has great potential, especially in terms of broadening the scope of design history and theory education, as well as in forging numerous interdisciplinary links.
