Bill's Design Talks: From Then to Now—The Trajectory of Design


The design process has progressed from just forming objects to addressing the situations in which objects are used. This is a major theme in Ralph Caplan's seminal book By Design, expressed in the book's subtitle: Why There Are No Locks on the Bathroom Doors of the Hotel Louis IV and Other Object Lessons. This year, Ralph Caplan is honored with the National Design Mind Award for his contributions to design research and scholarship.
