I am Emeritus Professor of Design at Goldsmiths, University of London, where I was Deputy Head of Fine Art in the 80’s, before launching some of the first ‘green’ design degrees to combine ethics with enterprise (e.g. MA Design futures).

I was also a visiting professor in Nagoya, Seoul and Bangkok.
