Everything we do is designed, whether we’re producing a magazine, a website, or a bridge. Design is really the creative invention that designs everything.
– Henry Petroski
I don’t like the collusion between high fashion design and high street. You have to know where you stand. I belong to luxury fashion. That’s what I’ve always felt and embraced. I like the best quality, the best fabrics and the most creative field in fashion. I will stay consistent. I belong to this world.
– Hedi Slimane
To go back to architecture, what’s organic about architecture as a field, unlike product design, is this whole issue of holism and of monumentality is really our realm. Like, we have to design things which are coherent as a single object, but also break down into small rooms and have an identity of both the big scale and the small scale.
– Greg Lynn
There’s a simple arithmetical logic at work. Build more unaffordable and not always architecturally sympathetic apartments, watch the rents rise, the tarts leave, the small shops, production offices and design studios close down, and hey presto, we have another fashionable London suburb indistinguishable from the rest.
– Howard Jacobson
I want to have all that scientific information that we’re building be used in designing the future so that people who make geographic decisions – and here it’s not just land-use planners, but it’s everyone: foresters, transportation engineers, people who buy a house – can analyze all of these information layers and design a future.
