Our World to Change describes in small format the big connections between business, nutrition, and immigration. The question Are We Human? presents itself in view of the digital transformation. Signs for Peace documents visible indications of the quest for peace. Social Design is design for society and with society.
The world has become smaller but no easier to control. R. Buckminster Fuller’s Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth provides some hints. Ecological Urbanism calls on us to improve urban sustainability. Ethics of the Urban advocates an understanding of the city as a place where the conditions of coexistence are negotiated peacefully. Handbook of Tyranny stands up to the cynical excesses of disproportionate territorial power. Global Design traces the global networking of communication, production, trade, capital, and mobility. Protest is a cultural achievement, as illustrated in posters, photos, and essays.
