A Better World Through Design

In an age where new disruptive technologies are emerging on a near-weekly basis, is design the key to a better future? Using the Better World by Design conference as the starting point, Polis argues that design is essential to vastly increasing the benefits of a purely mechanical approach to technological innovation. For cities, this means more than a focus on roads and buildings as corridors and nodes, towards one where community, the environment and culture are designed to thrive. From construction and development to citymaking.
