Thought building

There is a heated debate in design schools as to whether the academia is following industry and whether it could be reversed. What I have found is the general curriculum of design schools is behind the times but if you look deeper into the colleges you see this trend toward small centers that are leading the way in design thinking. See the Aridlands Institute at Woodbury College in LA for an prime example. This fall's lecture series will lead the way in understanding water scarcity as a catalyst in the climate change discussion.
