The XXII Triennale di Milano exhibition Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival highlights a range of international architecture and design projects that underline the concept of restorative design.
By bringing together the voices of a number of curators, scientists, scholars, designers, and artists, the XXII Triennale di Milano seeks to engage its visitors with questions of climate change, migration, artificial intelligence, politics, gender, labor, economics, social justice, and natural histories. This exhibition catalog highlights objects and concepts at all scales that reconsider humans’ relationship with their environment, including research into both natural and social ecosystems. The aim is to trace design’s ability to move us into a more constructive sense of indebtedness toward nature.
This volume will appeal to the design community as well as a broader readership and scholars who study the sociological, economic, political, and personal ramifications of design as it relates to the environment.
