Victor Papanek, the pioneer of social and sustainable design for the real world
Victor Papanek spearheaded social and sustainable design based on political awareness rather than consumerism. A biography of the author of Design for the Real World.
I've been writing about design and architecture for many years and I realise social design projects in Italy and abroad. What did I love the most of my works? The three years I spent in Africa and Asia for a design training and product development project for women in situations of social unrest, with the aim to lay the foundations of a sustainable microeconomics. Photography is a passion and an important mean for my creative work. I have a daughter who lives in San Francisco, the world's most beautiful city to me.
