From Pools to School Lunches: How Public Interest Design is Changing the Way We Do Things

In New York TimesFixes column, journalist Courtney E. Martin provides a thorough look into the process and results of IDEO’s project on reimagining the school food system, done in collaboration with San Francisco Unified School District. Moving beyond just the ingredients of school lunch, the questions posed by IDEO designers focus on not what, but how students are eating lunch. Their process and their results will have you reevaluating how you approach projects [hint: human-centered].

In this interview with Morgan Fitzgibbons, co-founder of [freespace], Dan Parham asks about how civic hacking is changing our cities, what the future version of a community center is, and what we should each be responsible for as part of our civic duties: “...it is the responsibility of literally everyone to help move our cities and our communities forward. If you think voting once a year is the extent of your civic responsibility you are incredibly naive.”

In this article for Architect Magazine, Elizabeth Evitts Dickinson takes an in-depth look at the Millennial generation and the ways in which they are changing the workplace culture in architecture and design. She argues that Millennials are poised to turn the architecture and design industry on its head, and pioneer a dramatic reshaping of the way design is practiced. From Design for America to BIM to Kickstarter, Dickinson discusses an impressive array of trends and how they are transforming the industry.
