ABC Radio National's By Design is a program about how we shape our world - a vibrant show about people and that things that surround us.  From the cities and buildings we live in to the cars we drive and clothes we wear, the program deals with architecture and material culture, the politics of the built environment and design - all through the prism of our daily lives. It explains how, through the creative process, human ideas take on tangible form and designers reinvent the world to keep pace with its changing needs and desires, lifting the quality of our lives.
The program explores how design - the way thinkgs look, feel and function - reflects social change; what the decisions we make as consumers of architecture and everyday objects tell us about who we are.
