Making Sense - Qualities of Living

Predictions for the year 2050 do not look good: according to demographers, by then a third of the population will be over sixty five; according to environmentalists there may be no population at all. Meeting the challenges of the twenty first century will determine how we live and perhaps if live. Design cannot be business as usual because business as usual could get us killed. Design is about exploring alternatives. It must engage creative, scientific and humanistic processes to address the challenges that are threatening our survival. How then do we want to we live?
