Good design prevents problems before they arise. Inspired by the Festival Headquarters’ location in the former Sophienspital, Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw students wearing doctor’s white coats listened and ascertained symptoms, then prescribed personalized prophylactics and ad hoc treatments. As part of a diagnostic procedure designed for this purpose, visitors served as idea donors, making suggestions that could potentially be useful for a wide audience. The intention was to illustrate current social problems, find tools for solving them, and make everyone’s life a little better. The method: imaginative, meticulous, and charming. Our finding: acute delight.
