California as a Design Problem > Projects > D:GP The Center for Design and Geopolitics

California is home to many of the world’s most inventive scientists, engineers, companies, studios, philosophers, entrepreneurs, writers, activists, artists, creative and technological talent, as well as an unparalleled diversity of natural and demographic resources. From the Spectacle to the Singularity, it could be said that California’s culture and economy invented the second half of the 20th century.

As globalization is driven by the continued emergence of sub-national, post-national and supra-national politics, some as small as a data-packet and others as large as an climatic system, California’s status as the richest non-Federal jurisdiction in the world, its complex national and international borders, it’s pivotal location among European, Latin and Asian economies, (as well as its exemplification of dysfunctional self-governance), makes it a critically important laboratory for redesign and redevelopment. If necessary restoration, revitalization and reinvention doesn’t happen in California, it might not happen at all.
