Design for a Changing World

China focus programme

The world in 2020 has taken a drastic turn, with the current pandemic and the urgent environmental threats, the dialogue with China is more pertinent than ever. BIAN 变, meaning change in Chinese refers to the Daoist "science of metamorphosis” which can lead to positive change and transformation. How can we accelerate design knowledge, exchange and learn from a crisis to come out more united, better and stronger?
