At a request from the editors of Diseña Magazine, I have translated the Open Letter into Spanish, to be published shortly. The rights of this translation have been waived in support for this initiative. I plan to mail it to Professor Margolin, whom I had the chance to meet on occasion of the Chile Design Biennale, as soon as I get clearance from the editors. I also plan to read it and discuss with my students in my design studio class at UDD.
