International New Designers Workshop 2006
50:50 – love & marriage, work & children, family & society

The workshop’s goal is to explore gender-specific design with a social impact, through a new-media documentary approach. By the end of the workshop, after a process of documenting women-driven lifestyle trends, students will make an innovative proposition that will cater to the new social reality brought forth by the demographic changes in Nagoya.
In terms of work and marriage, it is often said that Japanese women have a unique perspective about their identity, which women in other developed countries do not have. We will do an exploration of how the lifestyles and values of Japanese women affect social trends in this country. In particular, in the last 5 years, in Japan as well as many parts of Asian countries (Korea, Taiwan, Singapore), we are facing an unprecedented social phenomenon of droves women remaining single, a rapidly declining birthrate and an increasingly asing population.
