  • Agenda

      The Design Revolution - How is Bucky’s call for a Design Science Revolution (1961) going? What is the role of design in solving the complex problems of our era? How can nature-inspired, biomimetic, regenerative, and “design science” approaches achieve better outcomes than design has in our past? How do we accelerate the adoption of these approaches? How do we incentivize more resources to flow toward projects taking the anticipatory 'long view'? What do we need in order to better leverage visionary and innovative design approaches?
