Design e Risco de Mudança [Design and the Risk of Change]poses several questions that stem from the title itself: what is the risk to which the author Victor Margolin refers? As a pivotal discipline among a growing number of areas of knowledge, Design can be an aggregating and diversifying pole. It can broaden and deepen communications networks, generating quality synapses. These synapses depend on Design’s questions and choices. Thus, we should ask ourselves who makes the choices and with what assumptions, since each path corresponds to a vision of the world that, according to the specificity of each designer, manifests itself in his/her life and is mirrored by his/her work.
