During a recent event at the Amsterdam Pakhuis De Zwijger, titled “Design the Change”, I felt very much moved and inspired by a talk by Reinder Van Tijen (1932). Design as we know it tends to imply the need for resources, knowledge, and infrastructure. But what happens when these are not readily available? Which means would you have to come up with innovative design? Reinder argues and proves that, with the right state of mind, you can be perfectly capable of innovative design, and make a meaningful contribution to the world, without having access to all of the above.
