Item description for What People Want: Populism in Architecture and Design by Michael Shamiyeh...

In today's society architects are subject to the dictates of the free market, the global trend towards privatization and the gradual dismantlement of state institutions and authorities. The pressure to alter their projects to conform to market and popular taste is increasing.

Does successful design in today s world have to correspond to the wishes of the masses? What exactly are trends and the expectations of the general public based on? Is design always a response contra popular trends, or can adapting to popular tendencies also generate the potential to create a better living environment? This book, which arose from the last DOM conference in Linz, examines the concept of Populism in some 30 expert contributions, gathered into 5 chapters, each beginning with an introductory essay. Short biographies of the authors round off the publication.
