IED MASTER TALKS 21/22 LAUNCH WITH A FOCUS ON CO-CREATION FOR THE CITIES WE ENVISION

The theory says that a city belongs to its inhabitants, but how can people really participate in its transformation?

This was the central topic of the first of the IED Barcelona Master Talks 2021-2022, a series of short and inspiring talks that return, through the school’s YouTube channel and delve into the role of design to face the new needs and expectations of society.

Bet Cantallops, architect and co-founder of Saetaestudi, as well as coordinator of the Master in Design for Urban Environment at IED Barcelona; and José Fran García, Head of Innovation Lab at IED, focused on the role of the collective in the urban transformation process, placing special emphasis on the creative force of citizens.

 
Based on real experiences developed in Madrid and Barcelona, both speakers underlined the importance of design for the development of fairer, inclusive and balanced environments.
