Design Innovation & Future Heritage

This programme is taught at the GSA's campus in the Highlands of Scotland. More information on living and studying at our Highlands campus is available here.

Future heritage design is a speculative interdisciplinary undertaking that draws upon a variety of academic disciplines such as design innovation, design anthropology, heritage and museum studies, heritage-based design practice, and user experience design. This course aims to delineate the concept of heritage in contemporary society, questions its ownership and identify its role in the society, from both local and global perspectives. It makes an early and important impact on heritage practice and cultural policy, recognising the relationship between heritage, community wellbeing and sustainability. This course encourages us to think how we can interpret and be inspired by heritage in a way that is speculative and culturally relevant to our society.
