EXCERPT – Criticism is an integral part of the ongoing knowledge construction that is embraced in the more mature design disciplines — architecture, industrial design — and in the arts. Critics interpret, contextualize, interrelate, abstract, and question the artifacts of design to clarify opportunities for designs to improve everyday life and to explore the ways in which designs deliver on this promise.
