Social - Design Issue
Design is supposed to be a way to improve our society, not make it worse. This means we are supposed to design responsibly and be aware of what we are doing to our surrounding environment. We should be designing for needs not wants.
A wonderful way Minneapolis has recently improved our society is by adding the light rail system of transportation. This is a great way to get around the city and use less gas! A design issue Minneapolis is continually dealing with is traffic congestion. Adding the light rail is a smart and economical way to solve a problem. I ride the light rail when ever I can and I will try to get others to also!
