Defining GOOD Design

Metropolis magazine considers the old adage that attempted to define Good design by aesthetics and sales only.

Peter Hall challenges this thinking with an argument that today Good design must consider other factors, such as the following:

Good Is Sustainable
Good Is Accessible
Good Is Functional
Good Is Well Made
Good Is Emotionally Resonant
Good Is Enduring
Good Is Socially Beneficial
Good Is Beautiful
Good Is Ergonomic
Good Is Affordable
