About this event

"Designing Our Way to a Better World" with Prof. Thomas Fisher

Room 743, ATCC Information and Technology Center

We can apply the same process used to design buildings and products to reimagine the services and systems that we depend on in our daily lives. Drawing on material from his recent book Designing Our Way To a Better World, Thomas Fisher explains how design thinking can lead to improvement in areas as diverse as education, politics, economics and public health.

Thomas Fisher is a Professor in the School of Architecture, the Dayton Hudson Chair in Urban Design and the Director of the Metropolitan Design Center. He has been recognized four times as a top design educator by the journal Design Intelligence and has published nine books, dozens of chapters and hundreds of articles.
