City in the Sky

It may look like scene right out a sci-fi flick where humans have begun to establish settlements on other planets in the universe and that too far in the future where traditional architectural norms have become mere relics of history, but this future mega developed city concept called the "Megatropolis" project may just be what a British city of the near future may look like. this architectural utopia came into being as a collaborative project between a few London-based artists and companies though the city that the project’s video depicts eventually ended up being NYC given how the production of the video was undertaken in the Big Apple.

Disruption by Design

As Ralph Caplan defines it, "Design is a process for making things right." This definition captures the optimism of design, and it implies our fairly natural intuition about when a situation is “wrong” or broken. In this TEDxSMU talk, frog Creative Director Kate Canales argues that design is something we come by quite naturally as humans. We design our way around broken systems everyday. The trick, of course, is to figure out how to apply that tendency to bigger and bigger issues. This talk is about the little things Canales has seen that give her hope about our collective ability to design for those big problems. It is also about her belief that there will almost always be a thing in design, but the thing itself is not what matters. What matters is what the thing makes us do.
