“Design as Collective Intelligence”
Design is our collective intelligence. It shapes the world we live in. We can recognize design in the materiality of our objects, the environments we dwell in, and the visual communication that we share. Design is the common ground of everyday life, and becomes the layer connecting the way we perceive our world, cultures and societies.
