'Public Interest Design pulses with community, equity, place and democracy. Its legacy of knowledge and practices, seamlessly interweaving design with community, is its DNA. Now, at this morphogenic moment, when PID is more than ready to prosper and grow, comes the Public Interest Design Practice Guidebook. With its many cases, process tools and SEED methodology, this book will fuel and energize PID culture and practice. It will fortify PID’s role and value and without question, help shape and transform 21st century design.' - Paula Horrigan, Associate Professor, Cornell University, USA
'This book is written for those that seek a new kind of design practice. The kind of practice that values on-the-ground engagement and thinking about the systematic impact of design labor. A practice that does not dictate form but rather seeks a radically contextualized understanding of "Public". Those new practitioners will find the critical essays and case studies found in this book to be invaluable tools.' - Quilian Riano, Founder and Principal, DSGN AGNC, USA
'Bryan Bell and Lisa Abendroth have dedicated their respective careers to igniting the spirit of public interest design that exists within all of us who are charged with creating the constructed legacy of our time. If you have ever had the inclination to work on behalf of others whose needs are far greater than our own, then you will find the instruction, wisdom and inspiration contained within this book invaluable.' - R. Steven Lewis, SEED Network founding member, USA
