The design sector is developing at a rapid pace and undergoing constant change. What role will design play in the 21st century? At present, when design disciplines are crossbreeding to a greater degree than ever, the possibilities and opportunities seem virtually unlimited – from design of the public space to future mobility to creation of digital applications. And still, everything has one universal objective: making all our lives better. Good designers know how to talk to people, are sharp eared and act with empathy, and take into account various peoples’ desires and needs. As members of a people-oriented profession, designers see themselves as having a great deal in common with a good doctor. At the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, visitors will be invited to take part in a special social design diagnostic procedure. The intention is depicting current social problems and identifying tools to solve them.
