Szenasy, Design Advocate - Writings and Talks by Metropolis Magazine Editor Susan S. Szenasy

Author(s): Ann S. Hudner

Art and Design

For more than 30 years, Susan S. Szenasy's voice has resonated as an editor-in-chief, writer, teacher, moderator, filmmaker and lecturer. In all of these roles, her advocacy for ethical, sustainable, human-centred design has been her guiding light. Known for decades as the editor-in-chief of Metropolis magazine, one of the most influential design magazines in the world, Szenasy has led the charge on issues ranging from universal design to emerging trends of consumer excess, from design for disassembly to the recovery of Lower Manhattan's communities after 9/11, from design education to the social and environmental impacts of the buildings and products we manufacture. This volume the first published collection of Szenasy's writings brings together editorials, reviews, stories, profiles, industry event presentations, classroom lectures, commencement addresses and more. Szenasy's honest, thought-provoking and often challenging opinions are present in all of these pieces. So, too, is her ongoing commitment to informed dialogue, which has influenced and guided generations of design professionals, architects, journalists, retailers, manufacturers, legislators, educators and the next generation of designers.
