Overview

From the stone blade and the fire stick to the latest algorithms of genetic code, we shape our world through the act of design. With its roots in the Renaissance notion disegno, design is the ability not only to make something, but also to conceive of its invention and reflect on its meaning. Whether we valorize it as the democratization of design or critique it as the perversion of the commodity fetish, designed things are now ubiquitous. Not only things but entire systems must now be designed and objects reconceived and redesigned as mere moments in unfathomably complex ecological flows. The planet itself, and even space beyond, is now presented as a design problem.

What does landscape architecture bring to the broader culture of design? What lessons can be learned from other disciplines at the cutting edge of design? What role does design play in a time of transformative technological change? In LA+ DESIGN we move beyond the designed outcome to explore the myths, methods, meanings, and futures of design.

Authors

In this issue:
• Engineer and physicist Adrian Bejan outlines his constructal theory, which predicts natural design and its evolution in engineering, scientific, and social systems.
• Design researchers Craig Bremner + Paul Rodgers take us through an A–Z of design ecology.
• Architects Lizzie Yarina + Claudia Bode open our eyes to new ways of seeing things through subject-object relations.
• Jenni Zell explores life as a woman landscape architect through a Kafkaesque lens.
• Daniel Pittman interviews MoMA’s curator of architecture and design, Paola Antonelli.
