Our Host

IIT Institute of Design at Illinois Tech Graduate Campus

565 W Adams St, Chicago, IL 60661

IIT Institute of Design (ID) has a history of innovation. It pioneered the development and dissemination of modern design from its founding in 1937 as the New Bauhaus. In the 1960s, ID became a center of the first design methods movement, developing tools for structured planning—among the first applications of computers to design. In the early 1990s, ID helped pioneer the human-centered approach to design that has become a standard—applying ethnography and other social-science-research methods to the design process. In the early 2000s, ID helped launch the design thinking movement, linking design more closely to business innovation. Today, ID focuses on global challenges—preparing designers to take on the world’s complex, fast-changing, and unpredictable problems. We prepare human-centered design leaders through our masters and PhD programs.
