IN THE 21st CENTURY
Date: 4th October, 2013
Time: 13:00h (the presentation is 1h long followed by Q&A)
Venue: Kurshumli An, Old Bazaar, Skopje
The presentation is organized by: Skopje Design Week and Press to Exit Project Space in collaboration with Norsk Form (http://www.norskform.no)
This talk takes a closer look at two frameworks that champion transformative approaches to design: Metadesign – the design of design, and Socially Responsive Design – that shifts from designing for people to designing with people. Through a manifesto we will explore some projects and practices that are responding to the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
