Design Debate: Chaos theory in Design

Design Debate: Chaos theory in Design

An oft-quoted example for the chaos theory is the butterfly of Lorenz. The name is based on a metaphor that a flying butterfly on one side of the world could cause a storm on the other side.
Could designers possibly make butterfly strokes and initiate stormy changes? We are exploring this question based on the design project Ecological Energy Network of Lucas Zoutendijk (alumnus DAE design department Public Space). We ask questions from various disciplines to look at this project: it constructs an ecological line between various pylons in the Netherlands. Is this a valid design and could it end the lengthy discussion about the green corridor in this country?
