„At a point where there are active discussions on the value and influence of design, Museum of Art, Seoul National University has prepared the <Design Futurology> exhibition to
explore the future and role of design. Market-based design of the past that pursued human comforts and motives for profit must now convert to Eco-design, which has the ultimate goal of harmonizing humans and nature. Design is a creative activity that must consider a combination of sociocultural, socioeconomic, and techno-environmental facets.“ Excerpt Director’s Foreword
