Melbourne Design Week explores how design can shape life

Melbourne Design Week returns in 2020 with what organizers are calling its most extensive program to date.

The program aims to explore how design can shape life – from big-picture thinking around global events to transforming the routines of everyday life.

“We can spend decades feeling that the world stands still,” reds the programme. “But in an instant the world can change forever through catalytic events. As ecological, economic and social issues converge, design can help us mitigate and respond to these complex problems by testing out possible scenarios, creating new ideas, and imagining the future before it arrives. Design can give us hope and be part of a solution.”

This year the program extends across Greater Melbourne, with over 300 events spanning talks, exhibitions, films, tours and workshops and featuring the best in local and international architecture and design.
