ADI ITALIAN DESIGN ASSOCIATION – SOCIAL DESIGN

Subject: An account of a selection of Italian projects realized both in Italy and the rest of the world, where design is a tool used to create the basis of a sustainable economy for communities through the implementation of training, process design and product development. Design is a powerful tool, capable of acting at a social and economic level: a quality which should also become one of the criteria by which good design is judged. For this reason, as for the Service Design category recently introduced in the ADI Design Index – aimed at both public and private projects which address the theme of improving the relationship between citizens and institutions: systems for sharing, welcoming and participating – it has been decided to create through this exhibition a new selection category: from the 2014 edition onwards, the volume that publishes each year the pre-selection choices for the Compasso d’Oro Award will also include a Social Design category.

Curators: Patrizia Scarzella, Valentina Downey, Maria Cristina Tommasini
