To act in terms of design on our diffusely developed urbanised realities is something that today needs not a little thought and consideration, starting with a few big questions: who is the man who inhabits these realities? Which society supports them? What type of town or city occupies/characterises them? What are the features of the spaces and environments that define them? The first challenge for designers of the third millennium could be understanding the real meaning of man, the so-called post-industrial society, the city, and its environments. The second concrete challenge is to try and respond with the agile tools of design to the densely packed questions posed by the demand and the many opportunities that follow them.

Abstract

To act in terms of design on our diffusely developed urbanised realities is something that today needs not a little thought and consideration, starting with a few big questions: who is the man who inhabits these realities? Which society supports them? What type of town or city occupies/characterises them? What are the features of the spaces and environments that define them? The first challenge for designers of the third millennium could be understanding the real meaning of man, the so-called post-industrial society, the city, and its environments. The second concrete challenge is to try and respond with the agile tools of design to the densely packed questions posed by the demand and the many opportunities that follow them.
