Design & Development: Leveraging social and economic growth through design policies – by Gabriel Patrocinio and Jose Mauro Nunes (eds.) has just been launched and is available at Amazon (Kindle) and other digital platforms (ePUB).
The book brings together a team of experts from around the world – including Gui Bonsiepe, Victor Margolin and Mugendi K. M’Rithaa (former ICSID President) – to discuss Design as a tool for national and regional development. Two exclusive and previously unpublished documents of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization are also reproduced in the book, after more than four decades.
Originally launched in Brazil, the book received two awards (in Brazil) and took part of two exhibitions in Europe (Lisbon and Madrid), being hailed as “a theoretical and academic milestone, with potential to change the current practice and understanding of Design.”
