"Curating the best Industrial Design sites since 2009"
Free Book: Waste, Design and Dignity
Edited by Maria Cecilia Loschiavo dos Santos ( Industrial Design Professor at FAU-USP, São Paulo, Brazil)
“This extraordinary collection extracts deep insights into the most pressing economic and social problems of the 21st Century through a wide ranging exploration of the “other” side of modern and modernizing societies: the people and things abandoned in the process, and the interaction between two. Building on the path breaking work of the editor, Dr. Maria Cecilia Loschiavo dos Santos, these works provide a compelling and often inspiring portrait of human resilience and creativity against great odds, of people creating community and value, both private and public, out of what the dominant society regards as nothing at all. Along the way, this work demonstrates that the clearest view of political economy and of culture is often that from below.”
