The Design Science Revolution

References on The Design Science Revolution

What is the Design Science Revolution? R. Buckminster Fuller on Design Science is a collection of quotes by Fuller relating to Design Science (and it revolution). World Design Science Decade Documents. Paul Taylor has a web page on the Design Science Revolution, as does Libby Hubbard. The Rocky Mountain Institute is one of the most outstanding implementers of the approach that Fuller dubbed the Design Science Revolution. Their core principles represent the best documentation I have found in effectively representing a position that mirrors Fuller's thinking:

[Design Science is] the effective application of the principles of science to
the conscious design of our total environment in order to help make the
Earth's finite resources meet the needs of all humanity without disrupting the
ecological processes of the planet

-- R. Buckminster Fuller
