Abstract

Frank Lloyd Wright once defined design as “art with a purpose.” Indeed, the history of design supports Wright’s words. Gothic cathedrals were intended to instill an awe of God in worshippers; Bauhausinspired structures were intended to function as efficient machines; modern low-income high-rises are designed to lift their tenants into the middle class. All of these diverse purposes have a common element— they are oriented toward people.
