Dinocrates, I appreciate your design as excellent in composition, and I am delighted with it, but I apprehend that anybody who should found a city in that spot would be censured for bad judgement. For as a newborn babe cannot be nourished without the nurse's milk, nor conducted to the approaches that lead to growth in life, so a city cannot thrive without fields and the fruits thereof pouring into its walls.
And last of all we have the secondary forms of crystals bursting in upon us, and sparkling in the rigidity of mathematical necessity and telling us, neither of harmony of design, usefulness or moral significance, nothing but spherical trigonometry and Napier's analogies. It is because we have blindly excluded the lessons of these angular bodies from the domain of human knowledge that we are still in doubt about the great doctrine that the only laws of matter are those which our minds must fabricate, and the only laws of mind are fabricated for it by matter.james clerk maxwell
"The Escalation programmers come from a completely different background, and the codebase is all STL this, boost that, fill-up-the-property list, dispatch the event, and delegate that. I had been harboring some suspicions that our big codebases might benefit from the application of some more of the various “modern” C++ design patterns, despite seeing other large game codebases suffer under them. I have since recanted that suspicion."john d. carmack
The grand design of nature perceived broadly in four dimensions, including the forces that move the universe and created man, with special focus on evolution in our own biosphere, is something intrinsically good that it is right to preserve and enhance, and wrong to destroy and degrade.roger wolcott sperry
Modern industrial design has advanced at a rapid pace during the last ten years. Its successes are no longer confined to objects which, like automobiles and airplanes, are themselves the product of new conditions. Modern design has also begun to conquer the traditional arts, and the feeling for abstract form, first expressed in our time in the works of Picasso , Braque , Brancusi , Duchamps-Villon in Europe, or Stieglitz , Benton , and Storrs for example in the United States, has finally entered architecture and the decorative arts.Lewis Mumford (1930) "Culture and Machine Art." in: Modern American design. R.L. Leonard, & ?C.A. Glassgold (eds.), ?American Union of Decorative Artists and Craftsmen. p. 9
Conceptual models are best thought of as design-tools a way for designers to straighten out and simplify the design and match it to the users' task-domain, thereby making it clearer to users how they should think about the application.Jeff Johnson, ?Austin Henderson (2012) Conceptual Models: Core to Good Design. p. 20
Architecture has two meanings depending upon its contextual usage: (1) A formal description of a system, or a detailed plan of the system at component level to guide its implementation; (2) The structure of components, their interrelationships, and the principles and guidelines governing their design and evolution over time.The Open Group (2007) TOGAF 2007 Edition: (incorporating 8.1.1). p. 5
Nothing the greatest artist can conceive That every marble block doth not confine Within itself; and only its design The hand that follows intellect can achieve.c.1538 Quoted in Robert J Clements (ed) Michelangelo: A Self- Portrait (1968).
Systems science is the ordered arrangement of knowledge acquired from the study of systems in the observable world, together with the application of this knowledge to the design of man-made systems.Philip M'Pherson (1974). A perspective on systems science and systems philosophy. Futures, 6, p. 229
If we think about things having multiple lives, cradle to cradle, we could design things that can go back to either nature or back to industry forever.William McDonough (2008) "William McDonough: Godfather of Green" WNYC Studio 360, 18 March 2008)
Enterprise Engineering is the collection of those tools and methods which one can use to design and continually maintain an enterprise.Peter Bernus, ?Laszlo Nemes, ?Günter Schmidt (eds.) Handbook on Enterprise Architecture. 2003. p. 22; Cited in: Dennis F.X. Mathaisel (2007) Sustaining the Military Enterprise. p. 69
Punishment is intended for example; but a person insane can have no design; and to punish him can be no example.Lord Swinton, Kinloch's Case (1795), 25 How. St. Tr. 1001.
Once we know what we need to do, our nanotechnologies should enable us to construct replacement bodies and brains that won't be constrained to work at the crawling pace of "real time." The events in our computer chips already happen millions of times faster than those in brain cells. Hence, we could design our "mind-children" to think a million times faster than we do. To such a being, half a minute might seem as long as one of our years, and each hour as long as an entire human lifetime.Marvin Minsky (1994) Will Robots Inherit the Earth? in Scientific American
Nature expresses a design of love and truth.In Encyclical Letter Caritas in Veritate (29 June 2009)
If God is watching us, as some believers suggest, as though we were a television show and God had a lot of free time, the deity would surely be bemused by how dumbed-down devotion has sometimes become in this so-called modern era. How might an omnipotent being with the long view of history respond to those who visit the traveling exhibit of a grilled-cheese sandwich , sold on eBay, that is said to bear the image of the Virgin Mary? It certainly argues against intelligent design , or at least intelligent design in humans .Anna Quindlen, in Newsweek, Volumes 146-147, p.228
INDUSTRIAL design is destined to become a universal language:;; for in our material age of rapid transition, from abstract, to applied, Science in the midst of our extraordinary tendency towards the perfection of the means of conversion, or manufacturing production it must soon pass current in every land.Jacques-Eugène Armengaud et al. The practical draughtsman's book of industrial design, 1851, Preface, p. ii-iv
