5 Design Jobs That Won't Exist In The Future | Co.Design | business + design. Organ designers, chief drone experience designers, cybernetic director. Those are some of the fanciful new roles that could be created by the global design industry in the next few years. But what about current design roles? How will they favor over the next 15 years? Will every company by 2030 have a chief design officer, or will they all go extinct? Should a generation of creatives who grew up worshipping Apple's Jonathan Ive put all their eggs in the industrial design basket?

We talked to a dozen design leaders and thinkers from companies such as Frog, Artefact, and Ideo to find out which design jobs could die out in the next 15 years, and which could grow.

Building on the Cloud: Gehry and Box Overhaul Architecture With New Paperless Service. Frank Gehry hates paper. Not paper itself — just its use in architecture. His company, Gehry Technologies, has spent the last several decades developing a digital system for sharing and working on architectural plans and diagrams and other types of building information modeling, and now he’s trying to share it across the industry, with the help of a new collaboration with cloud-based storage service Box.

As modeling tools have gotten increasingly complex — in architecture and otherwise — they’ve become data-intense, and file storage and management has grown correspondingly difficult. Gehry Technologies’ GTeam software is the Pritzker Prize-winning architect’s attempt to streamline and manage access to different types of design files and documents, from blueprints to certificates to CAD. Box, meanwhile, is a cloud-content management and storage service with an increasing presence in the architectural, engineering, and construction industries. “My dream is to do buildings paperless.

São Paulo, 2011 In collaboration with graphic artist Alexandre Nino. The design for HOT HOT Nightclub fuses elements inspired on the work of Scandinavian designer Verner Panton and his pop and humorous language, which set the tone for the 70's, with the characteristic brutalist architecture of the underground scene of Berlin's nightclubs and sex houses.

Located in historical downtown São Paulo, the two-story building was completely abandoned for nearly two decades.The facade of the club received no intervention, highlighting the very action of time in the building, with its dilapidated appearance and graffiti. A 20 meters long tunnel of light connects the outside world and the HOT HOT universe. The light is provided by huge LED displays, which unfold through the entire ceiling, and enters the staircase area and the lounge upstairs, like a living organism. Digital technology and peeling walls, beams and roof merge in this environment, emphasizing the proposed project. São Paulo, 2011. TEA HUG - for Tai Ping The project we developed for Tai Ping was based on the idea of separation and reconciliation, as exists in the relationships between foreign and native, tradition and innovation, or crafts and technology.

While researching about the beginning of the connection between China and Brazil, we came across a gorgeous painting depicting the first Chinese immigrants. In 1812, they came from Macau to Rio de Janeiro to introduce the cultivation of green tea in Brazil, a Portuguese colony at the time. This image became the starting point of our digital poetic narrative. Utilizing our digital tools, we created new relationships between its color and composition. These elements were finally re-arranged using the data of the melody of a traditional Chinese song that talks about "separation".

The resulting image is a contemporary visual narrative encapsulating some of the history between China and Brazil. Esta imagem tornou-se o ponto de nossa narrativa poética digital.
