Trust Is Work

‘Trust Is Work’ is a publication that gathers the outcome of the master course ‘Design Studio: Digital Urban Living’ at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, autumn 2019. Through design we have explored how to facilitate for societal participation and trust in a Nordic digital shift. The Nordic Model and the values it embodies are challenged by digitalisation. In order to design for a sustainable development we need to get an understanding of what these values mean in a digital context.

During our research we identified trust as both a driving force and a resource for design, innovation and service development. Trust can be a competitive advantage, a resource for designing new services and for questioning old service systems.
