On 21 and 22 September, BAU, Design College of Barcelona will hold the 3rd edition of the BAU Design Forum, a series of interdisciplinary design and communication conferences and panel discussions.
The BAU Design Forum was created with a view to becoming a meeting place for reflecting on the multidisciplinary dimensions of design. It is an event aimed at all students, alumni, teachers, professionals and researchers who are interested in exploring the new ethical, social and political horizons of contemporary design. How can design integrate the need to transform the world of today with the need to conserve the ecosystems on which it relies? How can design deal with both the urgency of the questions and the complexity of the solutions?
At the 2017 BAU Design Forum we will reflect upon and discuss the social, political and environmental implications of any act of design, which we will interpret as an act of transforming the world in which we live.
