9781847885869: The Designed World: Images, Objects, Environments

We now live in a designed world and we need to develop a better understanding of how to discuss and critique its design components. The essays presented here -- selected from the preeminent journal, Design Issues -- are intended to enhance our collective understanding of the wide reach of design in the contemporary world. The book is structured to cover the life of a designed object or project from conception and fabrication to evaluation. The essays are divided into themed sections, with each section separately introduced and each concluded with further reading. The Designed World aims to break down the often rigid boundaries between history, theory and criticism. Despite the wide range of subjects discussed, the book highlights the commonalities across all aspects of design. The reader will be invaluable to students, scholars and practitioners across the field of design.
