During this special of Designing Cities for All we will interview designer Satyendra Pakhalé about his book Satyendra Pakhalé Culture of Creation which was released in the midst of the Corona pandemic. This book explores the role of design in fostering the common good, uniting us all in today’s divided world. It is the outcome of three years’ labour of love, with contributions from a number of prominent design thinkers who delve deeply into Pakhalé’s oeuvre, covering a wide range of topics, such as the culture of making, social modernity, social cohesion, poetic analogy, perception and atmosphere, in which his thinking and design practice are rooted. During this program we will discuss Satyendra Pakhalé’s life and work  and we will try to find out how this book came about.
