Debut 2013

Good design education is a major prerequisite for designers’ careers. And this does not only involve the expertise they are taught, but also to the culture operating in the various educational facilities: specific styles and social networks that the students can avail of permanently as cultural capital. As part of the Debut programme, the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK is putting on two presentations of university design classes at once, thus two such “cultures”. As representative of a home university, Linz was asked to present a selection from their work in the department of space&design-strategies. Meanwhile the École cantonale d'art de Lausanne (ECAL), one of the top ten design institutes in the world, is showing projects from the various courses of study.
