Social Design Issue
When thinking about what I was going to choose to write about for a "social design issue", I first thought about what the words actually ment to me. I think that a social design issue is a design in any form (structure, product, place, ect..) that affects all or a group of society.
So I have decided that one of the biggest social design issues in America is fast food resturaunts. It seems that every main intersection that you sit at has a fast food resturaunt at its corner, if not all. Its funny how even our small unincorporated towns, coming up the hill you will still spot that golden arch. Americans lifestyle is fast paced and on the go, so most family or sit down dinners are out of the question. Our jobs engulf our lives and only having a half an hour break makes it hard for alot of people to fit the food triangle in their diet. We have become over weight compared to the rest of world and we wonder why? The American dream and lifestyle is more about conveinence that enjoyment and this is a perfect example. So maybe someone could please make a healthier alternative because we all know that our lifestyles aren't going to change anytime soon. I mean how hard is it to make Subway drive through?
