Designing Cities for All at Dutch Design Week

Pakhuis de Zwijger and the TU Eindhoven team up during DDW to create events together about shaping and creating cities for, by and with everyone.

Designing Cities for All is an extensive two-year programme initiated by Pakhuis de Zwijger, focussing on the role of designers in shaping and creating cities for, by and with everyone. During DDW Pakhuis de Zwijger and the TU Eindhoven decided to team up and organize special DCFA events.

In theory, design can encourage inclusiveness, diversity and equity and stimulate a fair, safe and healthy living environment for everyone. Unfortunately, in practice, this is often not the case. When developing, designers and engineers have the responsibility to take the societal and ethical consequences of their innovations into account. Those responsible for designing a city have the opportunity to contribute to this city being just.

In 2021, Pakhuis de Zwijger launched the programme Designing Cities for All, with the support of the Creative Industry Fund NL. This extensive two-year programme focusses on the role of designers in shaping and creating cities for, by and with everyone.

Inspired by this programme, Pakhuis de Zwijger and the TU Eindhoven decided to team up. During the renowned Dutch Design Week, they will host a series of events based on the subject of designing for all. The week will be filled to the brim with inspiring talks and creative sessions.

Here's some more information about the different events, but keep an eye on this page for more information about the program and speakers soon.
