The idea that design could also be highly visionary proved to be novel and provocative

In this case, that vision created three important development impacts: harden the edge, make a new front, and improve ground permeability. CURE’s work is mostly local, so we respond to people and neighbourhood issues. While we recognize the importance of the city in our narrative, much of what we do stays within the boundaries of infrastructure development and service provision. At the time we felt somewhat unsure of our agency as an NGO to address these impacts, especially in the present-day developmental politics, but we did however tuck these away for future reference.
