Synergy in Architecture and Design
Creativity is a special lens through which we view the world. Each of us has a different one that allows us to create, from everyday-living objects to one of the seven wonders of the world. The power to see the beauty in chaos, to see constellations among stars, only goes to show how creativity drives humanity. Oftentimes, architects and designers magically wow their clients with design alchemy, which comes from the synergy of two ordinary ideas, shapes, forms, material, style, et cetera, et cetera. Design Literacy Forum VI invites academics and professionals in the field of architecture and design to offer their point of view in “Synergy” through a submission of creative work that reflects how “the whole is more than the sum of its part”(a meaning of synergy borrowed from Aristotle’s Metaphysics). And how great designs can be derived from successful synergies. Submitted works will be going through the peer review process and selected works will be published online via www.designliteracyforum.org on July 29, 2019. The submission portal will be opened from June 1, 2019, until July 15, 2019.
