“Design in public space. We have a problem?” is an exhibition devoted to the problem faced by all the cities of the world, namely the storage and processing of waste. At the exhibition and during the conference, we showed clever and well-designed ways of dealing with trash, reusing it, and educating how not to multiply it. Most of the projects presented at this year’s exhibition are in line with the new concept of circular economy, which concentrates on continuous reusing of resources. During this year’s edition of Design in Public Space we’re asking the following question: do we really have a problem? Our subjective selection of projects and initiatives, from Poland and abroad, proves that rubbish has potential. The actual problem is how to use it better.
The 2015 year edition of "Design in Public Space" talks about changes - large and small, initiated by residents as well as city authorities, with temporary but also long-lasting results. How do designers respond to the accelerated and changing rhythm of modern cities? Can the change be made? We don't know yet the correct answer, but we have more and more questions. Because every change is an unknown. We want to talk about it.
