Each age has innovated its cultures, societies, and environments by relying on at least three main elements: discovery, invention, and design. Yet innovation has often proceeded unevenly, like a three-legged table in which one leg is longer than the others.

Pre-conference interview with Luciano on Medium

Each age has innovated its cultures, societies, and environments by relying on at least three main elements: discovery, invention, and design. Yet innovation has often proceeded unevenly, like a three-legged table in which one leg is longer than the others. Post-renaissance and early modernity may be qualified as the age of discoveries (especially geographic). Late modernity is still an age of discoveries, but perhaps it is even more an age of inventions. And of course all ages have also been ages of design, at least because discoveries and inventions require ingenious ways of giving form to new and old realities. But I shall argue in this presentation that our age is quintessentially and more than any other the age of design. During the talk I will seek to clarify this statement and indicate what may be the most appropriate logic of design.
