According to Chochinov (2010:6), '[f]rom Victor Papanek's Design for the real world to John Thackara's In the bubble, from Buckmister Fuller's World game to Bruce Mau's Massive change, there has been a perennial desire to drive home the imperative of design for social good.' The first aim of this article is therefore to document a South African design project that focuses on social good and the impact the outcome could offer a very large segment of society through improved water quality.
