Garrett Thomson:


The philosophy of design usually characterises design as a way to solve problems. In its most advanced form, this idea consists in the claim that design is the solution of wicked problems. I would like to propose an alternative: namely that design is the creation of new opportunities. These opportunities consist in the reinterpretation of human desires in physical and social forms. This view of design tells us something important, interesting and new about the nature of human desire.
