“Love your experiments (as you would an ugly child),” “Don’t clean your desk,” “Make new words,” are just
a few of the rules that visionary, innovator, designer, and author Bruce Mau lives by. Calling him a visionary
seems lofty but then again he tends to tackle the lofty. From his book “Massive Change” to his most recent
“The Third Teacher: 79 Ways You Can Transform Teaching and Learning,” Mau communicates his vision of
changing the design of the world. Again, a lofty challenge, but be assured he will convince you that it’s a
lot easier than you think; just don’t clean your desk.

Informed by 25 years of studio experience in design innovation and collaboration with some of the world’s
leading artists, institutions and businesses, Bruce Mau has made the simple commitment to connect his
life and work to education and human development. Motivated by the idea that we need to rethink our
future and the way we will live in it, he asks in his widely successful Massive Change, “Now that we can
do anything, what will we do? What if life itself became a design project?”

“Massive change is not about the world of design; it’s about the design of the world,” explains Mau of
the book he published collaboratively with his “Institute without Boundaries” students in 2004. His main
motivation is that “a new world is evolving. It is driven by purpose and committed to sustainable human
development. The new world inspires and demands a new approach. Our future is no longer about selling
more stuff to more people – it’s about understanding our potential as citizens and designing and producing
shared prosperity and abundance.”
