Join renowned design critic and author Alice Rawsthorn and Paola Antonelli, senior curator in MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design, for a lively discussion charting the most dynamic developments in contemporary design.

This program coincides with the publication of Design as an Attitude, in which Rawsthorn questions how a new generation is liberating design from its strictly commercial role and redefining it as a discipline that values resourcefulness, instinct, and ingenuity. At a time of intense global uncertainty, Design as an Attitude explores how designers pursue their social, political, and environmental objectives in critical new ways, allowing for different new aspects of contemporary practice to flourish. The conversation will address design’s ability to help us benefit from the opportunities created by change and instability, and its impact on our lives now and in the future.
