As part of my ongoing involvement in Designing South Africa, I assisted in the production of the organisation's first publication, Reflections and Opportunities: Design, Cities and the World Cup.

The book critically explores the legacies of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. As the only major report on the World Cup 2010 published so far, Reflections and Opportunities is a landmark piece containing important insight and discussion points.

The publication is also published in Portuguese and heralded the initiation of a south-south link between the 2010 and 2014 World Cup host nations, South Africa and Brazil.

A critical article on three World Cup stadiums, which I prepared, was also included.

The book was published by Designing South Africa, edited by Zahira Asmal and launched in 8 cities globally between April and July 2012.
