Recognising that students are more and more committed to develop their career pursuing values, Lospennato traces alumni job roles that have embraced a career as change-makers, influencing the organizations they join. Moreover, Domus Academy students have successfully embraced emerging professional roles in various domains including Design Futures, Design Strategy, CSR Design Management, Innovation & Transformation Management, R&D Processes and New Materials, UX and UI Design, XR Design, and Generative Design.

When addressing the question of whether design education should lean more towards practicality or speculation, Lospennato asserts, “While practical skills enable students to bring their ideas to life, speculation helps them question existing realities and challenge societal values. By fostering a speculative mindset, students develop critical thinking, unlock their innovation potential, and redefine what is possible.” By nurturing a speculative mindset, students develop critical thinking, tap into their innovative potential, and redefine the realm of possibilities.

The interview concludes with Giorgio Lospennato’s vision for the future design education. He firmly declare that Domus Academy believes that design education holds immense potential for transformative action and the cultivation of a change mindset.
