The Impact of Memory of Early Experience on Design

Memory is one of the key factors that make us who we are today, and it could be crucial to design. This doctoral research intends to bridge the knowledge gap between design and memory studies, and to explore a new affective design strategy or methodology based on the target cohort’s collective memory of early experience. The study is currently focusing on the concept of “nostalgia” and it is being examined as an important design-related human experience, social phenomenon and also the basis of a potential design strategy.
