Talk

SOCIAL ANYWAY? – SOCIAL DESIGN IN THE SERVICE OF SOCIETY

VIENNA DESIGN WEEK

5.10.2018, 4pm

Design for social change, transformation of policies, civic engagement, design thinking, and designing for social impact. What do all these terms mean and why do we say social design when we talk about projects or interventions in public spaces? Notable guests from the field reflect on their own approaches and experiences while working on projects that address or aim to activate social engagement or highlight specific problems which can be solved using social design. And what does it mean to practice social design today as a designer or as an architect?

With: Johanna Dehio (Designer and prizewinner of the Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Design Award 2016), Brigitte Felderer (University of Applied Arts Vienna, Social Design), Anne Catherine Fleith (feld72, architect), Markus Reiter (District head of Neubau)

Moderation: Doris Rothauer (Büro für Transfer)

It’s a wrap! Talk with a presentation of the 2018 Stadtarbeit projects afterward: How have these projects developed? What will happen next?
