Responsible design is not purely about aesthetics, beauty or form; it no longer celebrates itself; it is not vain, but is in the service of a higher purpose. Designers, architects, and engineers ought to have high-level ambitions that go beyond buildings and structures, but instead help deal with the challenges we face today; like climate change, inequality, equitable access to education, health, or security.
In Ramboll, we believe that Purposeful Design must work in harmony with Regenerative Design and Augmented Design – the three pillars that make the Ramboll Design System– for the much needed and effective societal change.
