Process, a new role for the architect: Michael Hansmeyer at TEDGlobal 2012
As an architect, Michael Hansmeyer asks, “What is the origin of the forms we design?” And he asks: “What kind of forms would we design if we had no bias, if we had no preconception? What kind of forms would we design if we could free ourselves from our education?”
“How,” he says, “Would we go about creating something truly new?” His idea is to look to nature. Not to copy it, but to use the processes of nature to design something new.
Every friday we are going to ‘Flashback’ to moments that need to be preserved for their impact on how we look at, think about, and react to modern design in fashion and culture, today and tomorrow.
