Paola Antonelli on Designers' role in Interdisciplinary Collaboration

This is a great little article in Seed Magazine, by Paola Antonelli (senior curator at MOMA).

In it, she talks about the burgeoning trend of interdisciplinary collaboration, and the importance of designers in facilitating this cross-pollination between fields, since designers are best positioned as "intermediaries between research and production".
Also, "to cope with this responsibility, designers need to set the foundations for a theory of design and become astute generalists."
