    The plan to start this blog originated from the workshop series “The Time Design Bureau” which I held in the spring of 2015 at the MUSEO 900 in Florence. The name of the workshops was inspired by the BUREAU OF IMAGINARY EXCHANGE initiated by the Canadian artist Paul Woodrow in 1977 in Calgary; there everybody interested could drop in and have a conversation with the artist about a variety of topics.

    In the Time Design Bureau obviously the topic was and is time, and here we look at how we handle time in everyday life, without discussing philosophical or scientific aspects. For time in social contexts the sociologist Norbert Elias has suggested that we use the verb ‘time’ rather than the noun in order to emphasize that we do something with/in time, without having to think about what time really is.

    So how do we ‘time’?

    While Time Management claims to push people toward ever greater efficiency (or what is commonly considered as such) Time Design wants to offer some suggestions for a timing that corresponds better to personal characteristics and may give some gratifications, both on the individual and the social level.
