SAN DIEGO, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NewSchool of Architecture and Design (NSAD) announced that Elena Pacenti will join NSAD in August as director of the recently created Domus Academy School of Design at NSAD. Pacenti comes from Domus Academy in Milan, Italy, which is one of the top-ranked design schools in the world.

Pacenti currently directs the Design School at Domus Academy in Italy, and she brings the Domus Academy emphasis on advanced design methodologies for anticipating needs and trends in a continuously evolving society.  The academy has received recognition from around the world, including being nominated three times by Businessweek magazine as one of the best design schools in the world. The academy also received the prestigious Compasso d'Oro award for the quality of its academic and research approaches, and it was included in the 2012 publication of Masterclass: Product Design: Guide to the World's Leading Graduate Schools from Frame Publishers.

Pacenti brings to her new position both professional and academic expertise in design-related fields. She was director of the Domus Academy Research Center from 2002 through 2009, where she oversaw the development and coordination of design innovation research projects for the European Union and for government and private groups in Italy. In 2011, she established the Master in Service and Experience Design program at Domus Academy. Pacenti has an undergraduate degree in architecture and a PhD in industrial design, both from the Politecnico di Milano. Throughout her career, she has focused on research and application of theory and practice in the areas of service and product design.

"I am honored to join NSAD and to have the opportunity to enhance and expand its offerings in global design education," said Pacenti. "The role of the designer in our contemporary society requires an increasing ability to view design from many different perspectives. I look forward to helping NSAD students prepare for professional practice in design-related fields and learn to adjust and respond to the evolving challenges of this industry."
