Design for a democratic society was a matter of urgency in bombed-out postwar Europe. Swiss sociologist, journalist, professor and founding father of strollology, Lucius Burckhardt (1925-2003) pioneered the interdisciplinary analysis of man-made environments, and thereby highlighted both the visible and invisible aspects of our cities and social relations. Acutely aware of how our interventions and decisions shape the world, and how the changing world in turn, shapes us, his life-long focus was not only the prerequisites of architecture, urban planning and design but also their long-term impact. Teaching and practice still owe much to his work. Thus, the first selection of Lucius Burckhardt’s texts to appear in English, introduces his groundbreaking theory of environmental design, in retrospective tribute to a prescient thinker.
Je ne suis pas sûre, mais il me semble que ce recueil est paru en 1991 en Français sous le titre : Le Design au-delà du visible, traduit de l’allemand par Jean-Luc Evard, Centre Georges-Pompidou, 1991, A confirmer ?
