Since the Computer Age commenced, great changes have taken place in design science.
Design journals effectively record and reflect these changes and play a key role in sharing
design concepts, approaches, and results. Editors of key design journals and design
theoreticians in China and elsewhere will be invited to the forum to discuss design
development trends, new forms of building academic platforms, and new approaches and
paradigms of design research. This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Zhuangshi Journal,
and the forum will be the most important part of the celebrations marking that occasion.
Presenting will be Leonardo Publications Executive Editor Roger Malina.
Hosted by Professor FANG Xiaofeng Editor-in-chief of Zhuangshi Journal.
More details to come.
50 Years of Celebrating the Community
Almost half a century ago, kinetic artist and astronautical pioneer Frank Malina set out to solve the needs of a community of artists and scientists working across disciplines by using the “new media” of the time: offset print publishing. As a groundbreaking, innovative venture, Leonardo represented a unique vision: to serve as an international channel of communication among artists, with emphasis on the writings of artists who use science and developing technologies in their work. The result was Leonardo, an academic journal for artists with the peer-review rigor of a scientific journal. For 50 years, Leonardo has been the definitive publication for artist-academics, and the field has gained momentum in recent years.
Leonardo's anniversary celebrations are made possible by our international partners and led by the 50th Anniversary Committee Chair Nina Czegledy.
