Systemic Design of an Idea Zone at a Science Center

Authors: Frederick Steier and Travis Thompson

In this working paper we bring key systems and cybernetics ideas to the design of an Idea Zone in a large regional science center. Most notably, we bring the ecology and systems approaches of Gregory Bateson and the cybernetic systems design approaches of Ranulph Glanville, to this evolving design project and explore how our learning from this particular case may also inform more general systemic design principles. This includes issues of context at many levels, movement across boundaries, as well as the importance of the design of a communication process for the design of an IdeaZone.
