Ravi Naidoo on Giving Design a Higher Purpose Design and the City

    • Design

Exuberant. Optimistic. Romantic. Three words Ravi Naidoo, the advocate who put African design on the map, used to describe himself. Ravi's story is one of reinvention. Just as South Africa was entering a period of newly found democracy, Ravi found an impetus to change his career. Over 20 years later, he is the driving force behind Design Indaba, arguably the most influential design event in the world. The event takes place in Cape Town every year, and it's only the tip of the iceberg. They consider themselves a do-tank, rather than a think-tank, pushing the boundaries of design with the simple question—what is design for?

Design and the City, is a podcast produced by reSITE about the ways we can use design to make cities more livable and lovable. reSITE is a global non-profit acting to improve the urban environment, both on the stage at our events, and off.
