The industrial design programme at Kwantlen focusses on sustainability and the design of recreational gear and technical apparel and related products – i.e. "soft goods" or "soft products". The session was also attended by students from the fashion programme. The lecture raised questions about the the meaning and interpretation of 'sustainability' and discussed practice-based design research for sustaininability. Examples of 'academic' design objects from research for sustainability were also presented.
