New attitudes: designing in times of transformations
New attitudes is about the new role of the designer with respect to (re) programming and (re) development. According to the foreword by Aart Oxenaar, director Amsterdam Academy of
Architecture, architects must now adopt ‘a sober-minded, enterprising, inventive and self-critical attitude in redefining [their positions] within the design field and within a social and physical reality undergoing transformation.’ In a clear, cleanly designed format, this book presents a series of reflections to give various perspectives on this reorientation and change of attitude which has occurred within the profession in recent years.
