The School of Constructed Realities is the title of a short story that Dunne & Raby first published in 2014 on the online portal of Maharam (an artistically progressive textile house that was founded in New York in 1902 by the Russian immigrant Louis Maharam).
Anthony Dunne, founder and for many years Head of the Design Interactions Department at the Royal College of Art in London, and Fiona Raby, Professor of Industrial Design at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, have been considered pioneers of a conceptual design movement for several years. With The School of Constructed Realities, they suggest an alternative approach to contemporary design education, which – even today – is still in part oriented towards the arts and crafts and Bauhaus movements of the 19th and 20th centuries.
