Recently published by Robert Lamb Hart, A New Look at Humanism focuses on enlarging the way designers think about design and to do that by learning more from the defining enterprise of the Modern revolution – the fast-moving advance of reliable sciences – and then applying their insights in practice. It expands on a line of thinking and conversations Bob has led, over the course of his career, about the places we design and the people we design for.
The scientific work that underlies new construction technologies – structures, materials, systems and software – has already revolutionized how we build today. But the insights emerging from the maturing sciences of human life – evolution, ecology, and the neurosciences – the ones that explore how you or I actually experience the places being built for us, are only beginning to be incorporated into design education and practice.
