By Scott Doorley, Carissa Carter, and Stanford D School

In Assembling Tomorrow , authors Scott Doorley and Carissa Carter explore the intangible forces that prevent us from anticipating just how fantastically technology can get out of control, and what might be in store for us if we don't start using new tools and tactics.

Full Description

A powerful, fully illustrated guide to using the tools of design thinking to create a more positive and cooperative future, from Stanford University's Hasso Plattner Institute of Design. Assembling Tomorrow explores how to use readily accessible tools of design to both mend the mistakes of our past and shape our future for the better. Despite good intentions, the impacts of the things people create and do are hard to notice, predict, and repair. From the effects of social media to the uncertainty of AI and the consequences of climate change, the outcomes of our creations ripple across our lives. Assembling Tomorrow imagines the future as if it has already happened and considers the past with a critical yet hopeful eye so that all of us--as designers of our own futures--can create a better world for generations to come. We live in an era of runaway design, where innovations tangle with our lives in unpredictable ways. The book explores the intangibles, the mysterious forces that contribute to the off-­­kilter feelings of today, and follows up with actionables to help you alter your perspective and find opportunities in these turbulent times. Mixed throughout are histories of the future, short pieces of speculative fiction that illustrate how things go haywire and what might be in store if we don't set them straight.
