Stadtarbeit – City Work


ExtraVALUE Design Award

Erste Bank

7.10.2017, 5pm

The Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Design Award is being presented this year for the third time. Sat 7.10., 5pm in the Festival Headquarters South at Sparkassaplatz followed by a presentation of the winning project. 

Stadtarbeit means togetherness. Design in general makes our world more beautiful and worth living. Social design in particular addresses social challenges and issues, and analyzes these themes over and above aesthetic and functional interpretations. Via an open call, a jury picked five projects that reveal outstanding creative quality in their potential for society. Intensive and unconventional in their form of presentation, they show how design reaps results in the lives we live together every day. The projects are realized in part in cooperation with Caritas. 

Jury members: Ruth Goubran, Theres Fischill (Erste Bank), Markus Bader (raumlaborberlin), Jutta Kleedorfer (Multiple and Interim Use, MA 18), Ebru Kurbak (Artist and prizewinner of the Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Design Award 2015), Georg Irsa, Clemens Foschi (Caritas, Archdiocese of Vienna), Advisor to the jury: Lilli Hollein (VIENNA DESIGN WEEK)
