Design is experiencing a time of strong momentum and growth. The rapid evolution of production methods and ways of living require more and more adaptability and innovation. Anticipating and stimulating change have become main factors effecting competitiveness, being an engine for change and effecting contemporary economies. Traditional disciplinary boundaries have been overwhelmed by the need for greater interaction, ability to work in groups and the transfer of technology. Designers are now required to know new design skills and ways of information sharing, as well as have improved ability to listen to the needs of clients. On the other hand, it provides designers with new opportunities to draw on the wealth of traditional knowledge but yet without formal conditions or style obligations. Even when applied to interior architecture, the designer must be able to make use of new skills to delineate separated professions, those typical of the architecture. The way of selling ‘sales’ has changed mainly because of the dissemination of “online shopping” and effect of mass distribution. New forms of shared consumption have been established and commercial spaces now take on new forms and functions. As in many other fields, they are not uniform linear transformations but are rather coexisting contradictory phenomena in very distinct situations. Local businesses have survived mass distribution because ‘zero kilometer’ goods are displayed side by side with goods coming from other continents. Even the shop under your house is not immune to the online buying phenomenon. Each industry sector has developed a mix of technologies... [-]
