This paper was written and presented in collaboration with research partner Professor Pete Nevin, of Putera Sampoerna Foundation, Indonesia.

Transformational Design in the Asian Century described new and emerging forms of design practice and teaching. It described the invention and establishment of new learning models in post-globalized, post-colonial society, transcending national and cultural boundaries, and considered the importance of social learning spaces and wider educational developments in the UK and South East Asia.

Case studies and background information for this paper were provided from Nevin’s experience setting up a new School of Design, Art and Media, based in Jakarta, Indonesia. As part of the development process Horl visited Jakarta, observed the key social and cultural contexts and delivered a talk about his work as designer and educator. Horl was responsible for writing several sections of the paper and took charge of all proof-reading and editorial requirements.
