Translating complexity

Paul with students

20 January 2011, Central St Martins,
University of Arts, London

Students from the University of Reading and Central St Martins worked with Professor Paul Ekblom of the Design Against Crime Research Centre (University of the Arts, London). 

The focus was on Paul Ekblom's '5Is' framework for crime prevention, a necessarily complex framework aimed at
providing tools and solutions for crime prevention bodies. After
a presentation, the students worked in small groups to study the system and develop ideas and visualisations. Presentations by student groups at the end of the day included everything from plans to redesign critical visual elements to conceptual ways of 're-presenting' this complex information for the online space.

The workshop aimed to contribute some ideas to Paul Ekblom'sTranslating complexity workshop
ultimate goal of producing free, open-source software based on
the crime prevention framework.
