€ 34,95 order at NAi booksellers

> Both design practice and design education are in a situation today that calls for bold new initiatives. – Victor Margolin
> It may sound trivial, but an essential instrument to connect the context of design with that of use is the moral imagination of the designer. – Pieter Paul Verbeek
> Read here the article on Utrechtmanifest

This book is the culmination of ten years of critical reflection on engaged design and the relation between design and society. The publication marks the conclusion of five editions of the Utrecht Manifest, the biennial event dedicated to the social aspects of design, which was launched in 2005. Against the background of the five biennials, an agenda for the future is laid out in essays and interviews by leading thinkers and practitioners in the field.

In this book, Victor Margolin, pioneering scholar in the discourse of social design, calls on designers, architects and educators to emulate the work of utopian visionaries such as William Morris, Walter Gropius and Richard Buckminster-Fuller and dare to envision what it takes to design for the Good Society.
