This is the phrase raised in Thomas Friedman’s 2008 book “Hot, Flat and Crowded” about the role of design in addressing environmental problems.
Design is no longer a decoration for products. Design has expanded its primary role and created collaborations with technology, management, psychology, humanity and art.
