Preface - A Southern Spin on Design Behaviors

Beginning in the days of inventors such as Eli Whitney and Robert Fulton, inventors of the cotton gin and steamboat, respectively, the South has built itself on technology. Neither the Old nor New South could exist without the 200 years of ingenuity, learnings, and market disruptions spurred by the region’s engineers, inventors, and thinkers. Unique to these problem solvers are a set of behaviors that span disciplines, utilizing design methodologies that promoted rapid development. But what impact has the Southern region had on remolding these behaviors to fit the design culture of the 21st Century? Join us each Friday as we answer this questions, progressing through the five design tenets that we teach in the Innovation and Design Collaborative in the Georgia Tech Library.
