Mobility by World Design Embassies
World Design Embassies connect designers with companies and stakeholders to look at the challenges we face as a society in a quickly-changing world, and the role design can play. In this episode: Rob Adams, the curator of the Embassy of Mobility, talks about how mobility is more about quality of life than it is about transportation and infrastructure. Designer Nikol Kirova introduces her project Synapse, which captures anonymous data via responsive sidewalk tiles to improve how we get around.
Listen to our other episodes on the Embassies of Health, Sustainable Design, Circular & Biobased Building, Water and Safety. We speak to both curators and practitioners about the challenges they face, and the solutions they envision for future societies. Climate change, urbanization, the increasing use of technology in our lives… where is it all leading, and how can we shape our society in a positive, meaningful way?
Come join us during Dutch Design Week, when the Embassies take on a physical form – in exhibitions, lectures, discussions and workshops – so that ideas, expertise and insight can be shared, with experts but also with the general public. October 19-27, 2019 in Eindhoven.
