Alexandre Champagne is a Ph.D. candidate in Landscape Architecture. After a few years as a financial analyst, he pursued his education and received an MLA from Cornell University. With the aim of exploring how design professionals could have broader impacts on urban social well-being, he entered the Ph.D. program with a focus on applied-philosophy. Based on postmodern views of human existence in regards to design, fiction, and tomorrow’s present, he argues that the design field should embrace a wider scope of thinking and speculate on creating the “good life” (Ricœur, 1990).
