Architect and educator Friedrich von Borries argues in this manifesto for a design (of survival, society, the self) that evades the totalitarian logic of securitisation and imagines new forms of living together. Humans have always been forced to design the conditions under which they live. But if this occurs in such a way that our options for action are limited, it could be thought of as subjugation. In the past, designers simply created objects. Today, practically everything is designed, from processes to refugee camps. In such a world, it is paramount to stop judging design solely on aesthetic criteria. ‘The World as Project’ advocates the need for a political theory of design.
