Our world, and everything in it, has been designed by nature, by man, and perhaps by higher spirits. Cities, communities, and buildings require thoughtful, functional and aesthetic design. As do services, experiences, and products: the smart phones, a prosthetic, and a hospital emergency room. Digital design, 3-D printing, and robotics, as well as traditional elements of design, are here explored. Meet the professionals in this vast field of work — the architects, engineers, urban planners, environmental and sustainability design planners, the digital, graphic and textile designers, and more. Apply your own design acumen in a class project!
