The latest installment in our ongoing series of exchanges with experts on the subjects of health, design, food, travel, and sustainability

Donovan Gillman‘s insight:

Recently attended a talk by PPS’s Fred Kent who was here in Cape Town for the V&A Waterfront and loaned to  the Cape Town Partnership for this talk.

I was inspired by his methods  working with the people on the ground who know what is going on and doing "LIghter, Quicker Cheaper" to get things done, not waiting for for officials who he calls the "NO" people and designers who aim to imoratalize themselves and put buildings before people.
