Event description

Description

The Designathon Showcase will highlight the best of the new design solutions that arise, reshaping forms of mobility in urban areas, and empowering citizens through technology. With speculative design techniques and a human-centric approach, the event examines new opportunities emerging from new technology such as blockchain.

The showcase comes as the conclusion of a weekend-long urban swarm hackathon, applied in the discipline of design. In the Urban Tech Designathon, participants spend two days developing ideas in interdisciplinary teams. Join us to see the results and see the winners of various prizes awarded in different categories for the best works.

The goal of the Designathon is to create synergies between disciplines, between design and the economy, science and the arts. The event is a festival that looks at design through a social lens, to generate innovative, fresh, visionary — but also critical — ideas. Everything from aesthetic visualizations to socially critical perspectives can arise, and may be presented in any form.
