In reading this book I thought that future-making is not building: it is weaving. Intertwining these essays, Susan Yelavich and Barbara Adams have been very skillful weavers. And, therefore, very effective future-makers. --Ezio Manzini, Professor of Design at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy
A probing investigation of the design of design, this heroically optimistic book looks beyond mere things to their imbrication by the social, the political, and the ecological. Revealing layers of informality, resistance, and unpredictability in form-making, these essays whiz across borders in search of both the insubordination of objects and of the ways our relationships with them can make happy changes in the world we inhabit and invent together. --Michael Sorkin, The City College of New York, USA
The future has never felt more uncertain, but Design as Future-Making truly captures the role that design can and will play in moving us forward. It is the right book for this moment. --Fred Dust, IDEO, USA
