What People Want: Populism in Architecture And Design
Architects today are increasingly subject to the dictates of the free market, globalism, and the gradual privatization of state institutions. Indeed, pressure to alter their projects to conform to market forces and popular taste has never been greater. Must successful design correspond to the wishes of the masses? On what exactly are the trends and expectations of the general public based? Is design always a response against popular trends or can adapting to popular tendencies also generate the potential to create a better living environment?What People Want is an examination of the concept of populism by internationally known contributors such as Diller - Scofidio, Kas Oosterhuis, Bill Moggridge (IDEO), and bestselling author Thomas Frank.
