The article 'Switch! Energy Ecologies in Everyday Life', written by Ramia Mazé and Johan Redström (Design Research Unit), has been published in the December issue of the International Journal of Design.

The paper presents an overview of the
Switch! design research program, which is a continuation of our work on
how design can promote awareness of energy use
in everyday life. Extending this approach to a larger architectural and
urban scale, Switch! was set up to explore the possibilities of design
as an intervention into multiple and interpenetrating technical,
material and social systems—or ecologies. Central to the investigation is
how critical practice enables us to examine and discuss the concepts,
strategies and ideologies underlying sustainable design.
