Debate topic: Individualism is the antithesis of good design
Hosted by Craig Zonca, ABC Radio Brisbane
A future-focused debate about the place of individualism in design. Does good design naturally address its place in the landscape, and its community? How does individualism impact the worldview, streetscape, or city plan for the many?
Certainly, the practice of creativity and art making is often an individual pursuit. Collaboration also involves the individuals to contribute from their own perspectives. Individualism can also be destructive in long and short term ways, public and private. The cult of the individual has led to poor choices that result in social, economic and environmental impacts. It may be individualism though that saves us, with individual efforts in promoting better, more socially compatible design – global and local, that we hope results in a better future.
