MIT’s Neri Oxman Urges Designers to Learn from Nature to Design Our Future

(TCTMagazine)  Neri Oxman, MIT Professor, discussed in a recent keynote how we are “moving from the age of the machine to the age of the organism”. Oxman, who leads MIT’s Mediated Matter research group, made a case for designers to learn from the fluid and self-sufficient way nature behaves, and rethink how we design our future. Nature doesn’t need CAD or 3D printing to exist, it grows organically in response to its environment and Oxman believes a shift to Computational Aided Design rather than CAD as we know it, will enable designers to harness that same power.
