About



All infrastructure is an expression of power.
Interfaces and technologies are social, political and ecological
accelerants.
Solutionism at scale prevents true change.

The New Design Congress is an independent research group founded by Cade Diehm.

Through research partnerships, livestreams, and publications, we use our three core arguments to understand the cascading relationships of societies and their technologies.
