In the Design Book: Total Design over time we look at the ideas behind projects around the world in the context of key macro-economic trends such as climate change, urbanisation, the technology explosion and changing travel patterns. In addition, it shines a light on engineering's often hidden role in projects past and present.
Throughout the book, we look at how Ove Arup’s philosophy of Total Design has positively influenced the projects that we work on, and concludes by demonstrating how Total Design has never been more relevant to our work and the wider built environment.
The Design Book includes contributions from renowned external spokespeople Martin Roth, Director of the Victoria and Albert Museum; Sir Richard Rogers, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners; and Ngaire Woods, Inaugural Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford. In addition, Sir Jack Zunz, former chairman of Arup, share his thoughts on the influence of Sir Ove Arup.
