MOBILITY+ takes place during the Munich Creative Business Week on February 25th 2015,
Prof. Elizabeth Sikiaridi and Prof. Frans Vogelaar of Hybrid Space Lab curate the program, together with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Berlin.
In conversation with the Dutch embassy Berlin
The Netherlands have had hundreds of years of experience with regards to connection between technological innovations and urban structures. The workshop we have planned provides an opportunity to experience the Dutch approach, which is characterised by integral cooperation. The “Dutch Approach” is unique in the world. Hereby, design is used in its original design-dimension: as a creative problem-solving concept, as a way of thinking and acting and for the development of new technologies.
The development of cities into smart cities offers several opportunities for addressing the challenges of the urbanisation, globalisation and climate change in a creative manner. The MOBILITY+ programme understands mobility as the motor and backbone of smart cities as well as the connection between a variety of smart services. MOBILITY+ extends the mobility theme to urban service design, smart tourism, smart retail, healthy cities and clean tech. It is about the mobility of the individual, according to needs, special and virtual mobility as well as mobility for health and well-being.
MOBILITY+ develops ideas as to how design, together with social innovation, can contribute to the transformation process of our society.
We are currently developing the programme “Crisis Design” or CRISISdesign.
It is directly connected to migration and flight as a result of climate change and war. With regards to basic care, housing, access to water, schools, etc., design can contribute to a change of consciousness and to more sustainability. The question of how to deal with the elements and natural disasters requires a crossover thinking.
