The word “metamorphosis” comes from the Greek μεταμόρφωσις (Metamorphosis, “transformation”).
Metamorphosis is a change or transformation of a body, a growth, a passage from a state juvenile to an adult state.
It can thus associate metamorphosis to a change in lifestyle or even habitat, however this can also occur without any of the first and only happen morphologies or state changes.
Observe the cities, these are in constant metamorphosis. On the scale of the building or to the master plan scale, this process is never stopped. So we can say that the phenomenon of metamorphosis is present in all of our lives.
We as designers of society, we have a transformative capacity, a vanguard vision that allows us to see beyond, to predict and see what others can not. Imagine alternatives, find solutions, solve problems.
This ability to change makes us unhappy and thinking beings with an insatiable need for change.
Dare to change, daring to transform, adapt, reshape, reinvent!
