The main purpose of the DRS 2014 conference is to foster and support a shared design discourse. By focusing on key big issues in design, the conference seeks to create a forum where the questions that have the potential to change the way we think and do design - its philosophy, theory, practise, methodology, education, profession and history - will be discussed and debated.

This collection comprises the peer reviewed research papers that were presented at the conference and the bound conference volumes.
