Design for generations

Long-term results? There are plenty of examples. Building a cathedral can take generations. During that time, knowledge and skills are passed on and those involved learn from each other. Living bridges, made of roots or lianas, grow over time and get stronger and stronger. Medicines unbound from legal patents after several years may benefit all people in the future. 

It is time we learn from such designs and systems. We can overcome the problems of our time if we rethink and redesign our way of life, and set it up for the long term. We call that Design for Generations.

Design for Generations is an idea – an ideology – and is represented in an ever-growing archive of concepts and projects. Look ahead and join us in this thought revolution.

The participating designer is Verveeld & Verward.
