Book Description

August 1, 2012 0415533546 978-0415533546 1

Designers around the world are carving out opportunities for new kinds of engagement, new kinds of collaboration, new kinds of design outcomes, and new kinds of practice; overturning the inherited assumptions of the design professions. Seventeen conversations with practitioners from the fields of architecture, policy, activism, design, education, research, history, community engagement and more, each representing an emergent role for designers to occupy. Whether the "civic entrepreneur," the "double agent," or the "strategic designer," this book offers a diverse spectrum of approaches to design, each offering a potential future for architectural practice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Future Practice - great ideas December 28, 2012
By MGrev
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has a simple layout and quick, short segments. The thoughts and ideas are interesting and often arresting. Rory Hyde asks good questions and does not pad the interview. I recommend it for anyone interested in architecture and city planning.
