Interview with Javier Peña in Experimenta

27.02.2018

 

Dr.Javier Peña, General Director of ELISAVA and Scientific Director of Materfad, appears again in the pages of the magazine Experimenta. In its issue 76, the quarterly publication on Design, Communication and Technology devotes several pages to interviewing the directors of several international design schools and universities.

In this context, Javier Peña answers questions about the most significant changes in design education during the 21st century and its immediate future, the skills that the current designer must have, or what distinctive feature ELISAVA offers in this field.

In this last point, Peña highlights the commitment of ELISAVA to enhance the skills of the student in relation to the environment, the conception of the designer as an agent of improvement in any field, innovation and the avant-garde led by the research department of the School, ELISAVA Research, and the connection of the School with the real world, which is possible thanks to the defence of the local combined with a network of international partners.
