  12. It is just the cognitive limits on the 
 number

    of interactions a designer can manipulate, 
 which make the unaided designer obsolete in the face 
 of the large complexes of requirements he meets today. Christopher Alexander and Marvin L. Manhein, The Design of Highway Interchanges. Cambridge: Department of Civil Engineering, MIT, 1962. CHRIS ALEXANDER 1962

  20. Design has evolved from the design of objects 
 both

    physical and immaterial, to the design of systems, 
 to the design of complex adaptive systems. 
 This evolution is shifting the role of designers; 
 they are no longer the central planner, 
 but rather participants within the systems they exist in. JOI ITO 2017 pubpub.org/pub/designandscience
  21. Design jobs that will die: User Experience Designer Visual Designer

    Design Researchers Traditional Industrial Designers Chief Design Officers Design jobs that will grow: Virtual Interaction Designer Specialist Material Designer Algorithmic/AI Designers Post-Industrial Designers Design Strategists fastcompany.com/3063318/5-design-jobs-that-wont-exist-in-the-future There may be some design jobs that “die” … 5 Design Jobs That Won’t Exist In The Future from design leaders from frog, Artefact, and IDEO
