University Web site features Fisher's new book

Adam Overland, writing for the University's Web site, has published a feature on Dean Tom Fisher's (Architecture) new book, Architectural Design and Ethics: Tools for Survival. Overland's feature, entitled "Design for the other 100 percent," examines Fisher's take on various "fracture critical" systems that have recently collapsed, including the I-35W bridge, the US auto industry, and the US banking system. "I look at ethics as a survival tool, not as something to moralize about," Fisher tells Overland. "We have to enter into anything that we depend on for our very survival with the idea that there is a high likelihood that something will go wrong... we need to build resiliency back into the systems."
