Ramia Maze specializes in critical and participatory approaches to design for systems and products that alter social practices and public life. While design is traditionally formulated in relation to industry, her work explores the expansion of design roles in society.

Her current work is concerned with: critical futures, through her involvement in a book on feminist spatial practices and the project UTOPIA NOW HERE at the Istanbul Design Biennial; social innovation, through case studies of design in Europe, the US and South Africa, and; socially- and politically-engaged design, through the DESIGN ACT series of public events and book with Iaspis / Swedish Arts Grants Committee.

She currently teaches at Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland.
