The research seeks to gain a critical understanding of the development of design education in Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia, between 1945 and the 1980s. This objective is set against the larger need to fill a gap in knowledge about design discourses specific to Southeast Asia's colonial and post-independence contexts.
