Member Profile

Professor Morello passed away on 4 September 2002. Augusto Morello was ICSID President for two periods, first elected in Toronto in 1997 and then re-elected in Sydney in 1999. These four years were a period of transition and great challenges for ICSID. Through an unusual and exceptional life-long experience, he could build bridges between profession and promotion, education and business like no one else of his generation. The three international bodies, ICOGRADA, ICSID and IFI held many joint meetings in an attempt to bring designers from all disciplines together under one banner. They tried to focus on the design profession and to speak with a united voice to relevant parties at the highest level on the global platform. It was during this period that Design for the World was ratified as a voice for the three bodies, focusing our attention on the relevence of socially responsible design and the belief that design could - and should - play an active role in uplifting the quality and dignity of life of all individuals on this planet. Augusto was seminal in these discussions. It was at these meetings that we learned of his passion for and dedication to design. He was a man of great vision with an astute understanding of the big picture. We also learned that he was a politician of the highest order, respected and revered by all. He had a colourful and warm personality and loved the fine things in life. Augusto's passing away is a great loss both for ICSID and for all design disciplines.
