In the history of architecture, forces that threaten to put an end to the linear and authorial design process emerge every now and then. While the latest iteration seems to involve AI (Artificial Intelligence), the individual author has been sacrificed on numerous occasions through various means: by the promise of distributed authorship of the Internet and open-source movements in the 1990s, or the participatory turn of the 1960s, to name a few. However, the widespread promises of distributed authorship and participatory approaches from those years, with few exceptions, resulted in the continuation of traditional authorial practices or superficial commitments [...]. So, do we embrace co-design, or do we set it aside and move towards “the next big thing,” wearing the badge of a new trendy term?


“None of the processes of design portrayed by the articles or projects in this issue could be described as “simply linear” or attributed to just “one enlightened mind:” ideas circulate, many actors are involved, technical systems play their part.”
