  • About the Book

Designing Peace implicates design in processes for mitigating, if not expunging, conflict ... How can design preserve community safety? How can design be used to root out the causes of a conflict? How might design contribute in smoothing the transition to peace in unstable contexts? And more curiously, can design engage “creative confrontation”? Given the sad state of geopolitics, the findings and solutions presented in Designing Peace are as urgent as ever. ― The Architect's Newspapaer
