Abstract

The aims of this paper is to analyse the contribution of the process of information on the development of an idiosyncratic design culture, through artístic, architectural and engineming in­fluences. With the development of new technologies. information has acquired an important role in social activity, but an excess of in­formation has had a certain numbing effect on people's minds and their capacity for action. In a consumer society where the ways to sell and even co self-sell are of the uttermost importance, any informative activity becomes corrupted by publicky. The priority of image in today's communication makes indus­trial products depend on the fast consumption of visual experience. The information system of technology and design-emission sources, communication media and audiences must fínd a balance between publicity and cultural information. Knowledge does not only depend on information. To build a Design Culture �past, present and future � something mone than news and images are needed. Theory is needed too.
