Maxwell O. Thompson-Eleogu, a native Nigerian who lives and is schooled in the United States of America, has completed his new book “Africa—The Road to Afro-Modernity”: a gripping work that describes the idea that failure of political leadership, lack of good governance, and stunted progress in Africa are not the main problems but symptoms of disintegrated individualism, which is a loss of sense of being.

Author Maxwell O. Thompson-Eleogu discusses his work, writing, “For those seeking to understand the root of Africa’s malady and their inability to grow like the rest of other nations of the world, this book, The Road to Afro-Modernity, serves as an inspiration. Our method is eclectic explorative; this is the approach that seeks to borrow ideas from other cultures that seem suitable to correct the deficiencies that exist in African culture. The eclectic explorative does not mean that we are disruptive to our culture; rather, all cultures are borrowed. This book, The Road to Afro-Modernity, is a transition from our old ancestral communities to Afro-modernity. We can no longer search for our identity and national identity out of the old world of the past. Our old tribal world and the ancestral world are not lost but outgrown. As such, our identity, national identity, and the meaning of who we are cannot be found; rather, they are to be created and achieved.”

Published by Page Publishing, Maxwell O. Thompson-Eleogu’s insightful work serves as a guide for those seeking the answers to the root of the malady of our time in Africa.

What are the problems in work spaces? How does one create a more meaningful design in today’s changing context and workforce? What is the future of the post-pandemic workplace? Vistasp Bhagwagar draws on his 30 years of experience expertise in work space design to answer these questions and more.

The post-pandemic the world has changed and so has the interpretation of the Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs for the working world. “Positivity @ The Work Place” (published by Partridge India) reinterprets the priorities of today’s work space needs and reestablishes the importance of design principles in designing meaningful work spaces, as well as the processes involved. The book covers 30 principles of design process and 10 principles of process design to achieve positivity in the work environment.

“There is so much of mediocrity and need for speed around that often the basics of design get ignored,” the author states. “This book attempts to showcase the rigour of thought and practice that is needed for meaningful design.”

With the publication of “Positivity @ The Work Place,” Bhagwagar hopes to pass on the baton of knowledge to younger architects, thought leaders and design practitioners for the betterment of workspace design thinking.
