Reading Tip: States of Design by Paola Antonelli (MoMA)

Design curator of MoMA Paola Antonelli reflects on the status of central design disciplines today in a series of articles recently published in Domus Magazine. You can read the articles online now, but why should you? A quote from the introduction to this series gives you a good reason:

“In the coming decades, the rest of the world will catch up and design will be embraced as a methodology and philosophy by politicians, scientists and economists who are willing to have a human, holistic and constructive perspective on the world.”

In case you are still not convinced, you might want to read what Bruno Latour has to say about the concept of ‘design’ first.

Design is no small matter…

  1. This is one of the most fascinating – and prettiest – articles I’ve read in a long time. I’m going to send it out to my art & design faculty. Thank you for posting it!
