Urban Food & Design

This year, the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK and the Vienna Business Agency are investigating the groundbreaking area of Urban Food & Design for the third time. The focuses for 2020 are new approaches to living together in the city and the potential of the local in an environment that continues to be shaped by the reality of global markets. The New Local is the slogan that has inspired the creative minds in and around the Festival Headquarters in the Amtshaus Theresienbadgasse to illustrate how the production, distribution and consumption of food can also be organized to be brutally local in the period both during and after COVID-19. The calls of the past two years addressed new sources of food, consumption patterns and forms of delivery. This year’s five selected projects are devoted to subjects such as the sharing economy, the circular economy and social participation.

In spring 2020, the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK and the Vienna Business Agency issued a challenge on the subject of Urban Food & Design. The five best concepts amongst all those submitted were selected by an expert jury and are being presented during the festival in the Festival Headquarters.

Jury members: Elisabeth Noever-Ginthör and Alice Jacubasch (Vienna Business Agency), Kathrina Dankl (Studio Dankl), Jonathan Lutter (KLK), Lilli Hollein and Julia Schanderl (VIENNA DESIGN WEEK)
