《世界设计史》纪录片:
Writing World History of Design
Victor Margolin
 
I’ve developed a way of working to make this huge project the World History of Design manageable. I’ve been collecting files for years and I organize all that material into groupings by country so that when I begin to work on a chapter, I have a file of material that I can start with. I’ve also been collecting bibliographies for many many years and have managed to put those into categories for each chapter so that when I begin a chapter, I’ve got a bibliography already. And then I do some more research and add to it then I download articles, put them in files so I begin with a large amount of information and then I just spent the period reading and as I am reading, I extract the information and write it down on this 5x7 note cards. So the note cards become actually the kind of outline of what I think the chapter would be about because I’ve already pulled the things from the readings that I think are going to be important for me. So I have these note cards and then the next step for me is to sit down at the dining room table with a huge pad of the newsprint and actually map out the chapter in a visual form. I’ve always been interested in graphic design and mapping and this visualizing technique really helps me to organize the information.
 
So I go through the note cards and I transform material from the cards to the sheets of paper in a non-linear way and then I see how things cross there and out of these diagrams and crossed, I begin to now think of them in some kind of linear narrative form so I put the diagrams up on the wall and when I sit down to write, I have the note cards and diagrams and I move back and forth between them as I start to write the chapter and then of course as I begin to write, a story begins to emerge because in fact I already rehearse this story in several different ways by getting the information for the cards, mapping it out and of course the writing is then the third way of telling the story, the one that would automatically result in the finished chapters.

书写《世界设计史》
马歌林
 
为了使《世界设计史》这个庞大的项目变得可行,我发展出了一种工作方式。多年以来,我都在收集资料,并且按照国别对这些材料进行组织分类,因此当我就某个章节展开工作的时候,我已经有了可以着手的资料档案。与此同时,许多年以来我也在收集书目,并试图针对每个章节分门别类,所以,当我开始书写某个章节的时候,书目已经是现成的了。继而,我展开进一步的研究并不断补充,下载文章,把文章归入文档。所以当我开始工作的时候,已经掌握了大量信息,接下来,只需要花时间阅读。在阅读的时候,我会提取信息并填写在5x7尺寸的资料卡片上。因而,事实上资料卡片在某种程度上就成了我所构思的章节的提纲,因为在阅读的过程中我已经摘出了我认为重要的部分。那么,我有了这些资料卡片,下一步就该坐在堆放有巨大的新闻纸的餐桌前,以视觉形式规划出章节。我一直以来对平面设计和绘图充满了兴趣,而这种视觉化的技巧确实在组织信息方面给了我帮助。
 
我仔细地检查资料卡片,以非线性的方式将素材从资料卡片转换到稿纸上,继而,我就能发现事物在哪里交汇。而正是从这些图表和交叉的区域,我现在开始以某种线性的叙事形式构思。我把图表张贴在墙面上,当坐下来写作的时候,我既有资料卡片又有图表。在动笔写章节的时候,我穿梭于两者之间。当然,在我写作的时候,故事情节会自动呈现出来,因为事实上我已经通过资料卡的信息收集并就其进行设计规划的形式以几种不同的方式多次预演了这个故事,当然,落笔写作已经是讲述这个故事的第三种方式了,自然而然地就转化为完成的章节。

装饰杂志将在接下来的纸刊中刊登书评:

《设计的演进》(“The Evolution of Design”)
马歌林史诗般宏大的《世界设计史》(World History of Design)记述了该实践领域的感性转变,即由讲求实效走向了富有艺术性。
