Human Cities // Summer Holiday’s Digest!

Jakomini in Graz
After collecting knowledge about the district Jakomini in Graz throughout the spring semester, Exhibition Design students at FH Joanneum Graz began phase two of the Experimentation Labs: An experimentation week called Five days in Jakomini. That began on May the 9th, with a public symposium of Human Cities experts in the fields of architecture, design and urban planning.

After working closely with theatre group InterACT, OSA, the office for subversive architecture and the artist collective Zweintopf for a week, Exhibition Design Students presented the first results of the Experimentation Labs in Graz. Ending a week full of workshops and creative progress, the three teams have accumulated many interesting ideas to improve the quality of staying without consuming in Jakomini Graz.

The Belgrade Design Week was the best design conference I have ever enjoyed – the specific spirit of the city in a kind of in between status, the rough tension which can still be felt ten years after the bombs, the pride and the looking for new orientation especially in the young generation – all this is giving the BDW a special flair far away from the current events of the global design circus. In addition the enthusiastic organizational team trying hardly but unsuccessfully to keep the program along the schedules, the informal exchange between the international speakers, the loss of any discipline, the parties on the river … what ever and how ever the interrelations between these aspects are working – it makes the BDW an unique, likeable, inspiring and productive event, I will never forget.
