Evolution of Sustainability in Design Research and Practice

  • Carlo Vezzoli


From the framework highlighted in the previous chapter, a growth of the potential role of design is revealed, because of the growing interest in product and service innovation (not only process anymore), and in the changes in perception of the quality of an offer: its cultural and aesthetic dimension. We will thus see how this growing role really penetrated design research, teaching and practice. To do so, let us try to shed some light on the different dimensions in which the design world has interpreted and developed sustainability.
