The power of design is evident in the creation of modern communities. Civilization has advanced and progressed rapidly, growing from villages and towns to cities and states, and with it the size of the populations and communities that live and thrive within them. Today, the modern metropolis has given rise to modern society – communities that have grown and developed thanks to the benefit and utility that the power of design has enabled.
The modern metropolis is organic, constantly evolving to cater to the intricate needs and complex requirements of the people living within them. It is through the power of design that we have found the solutions to directly address the growing and shifting needs of communities, where design is potentially the catalyst that sparks change, or a response that helps overcome an obstacle.
Just picture or imagine the modern city and the power of design becomes apparent. From the development of modern housing, to the growth of communication or transportation networks, the manner in which humanity has developed is influenced greatly by advancements and breakthroughs that have resulted from the power and ingenuity of great design.
