Presence - A Vision of the Future of Design is an ideological and design historical investigation of the design potential in visualization of dynamic processes and conditions. A communicative perspective on the possibilities of integrating form, interface and the identity/phenomenological character of a given context. The purpose of the project is to rethink functionalism and create a new ideological, methodic and expressive fundament for the future of design.

The book contains a public declaration of intentions, product- and architecture-analysis, research on smart materials, interviews with different architects, spatial analysts, product designers, environmental designers and other people, critical views upon design history, redesign of chosen objects of our daily surroundings, formulation of vision and models for adaption,
