Globalization, technological advancements, educational exchanges, and expanding communication mediums have all played essential roles in expanding accepted cultural boundaries. As a result, any innovative design introduced in any part of the world has no limitations and reaches all parts of the world. Furthermore, this liberalization has expanded the opportunities for designers to create a design that describes an individual's personality and environment.

To give people with strong imaginations and creative ideas for building innovations a creative platform, GLS University founded the GLS Institute of Design.
