Degree: 
  • Master's
Authors: 
Abstract: 
  • As our environment continues to change, the imaginary vision of design is continually evolving. As a design approach, the emergence of it represents further possibilities for the field of design. The main goal of this thesis examines the relationship between design fiction and environmental change. It will adopt an interpretivist approach that uses literature review and design fiction case studies. First, the thesis introduces the history of several main development stages of design. It finds the meaning of design fiction and expounds on the importance of design fiction in a constantly evolving world coping with environmental change. Secondly, it analyses design fiction projects in relation to how design fiction is important for the future. Thirdly, it uses cases to summarize the relation between design fiction and two situations of environmental change, summarises the roles of design fiction, and uses examples to connect environmental change with a fictional future. Finally, this thesis questions the future development of design fiction, and debates possibilities for the future and design fiction.
