Are we on a titanic headed towards environmental, social and economic collapse? And is it design that has got us into this mess?
Michael Garbutt thinks it is. Garbutt, a COFA lecturer in design studies, teaches 'The Great Debate', a subject that looks at the consequences of our 'designy' society and questions what design should be. Hear him discuss his bathroom tap and why he wants to throw a pile of televisions off the top of a COFA building.
