The Interdisciplinary Institute of Design (IID), is a virtually international group of different experts. IID is committed to leadership in developing the highest level of disciplinary and interdisciplinary education, design, and research. The Institute’s philosophy recognizes these areas of emphasis as interdependent and reinforcing and seeks to foster creative interplay among them. Our interdisciplinary approach in design is further demonstrated through our different departments’ courses, events and projects to equip students and scholars with critical skills and experiences to navigate the cities’ complex challenges of the 21st century. The IID collaborates with other both public and private institutions in the world. Our scope addresses issues ranging from object design to national policies, focusing on interdisciplinary areas.
