Entwurfsprojekt: Living Lab (Community Now?)

22.4.2014, 10:00

The idea of a Living Lab – as a working space, where designers develop processes and products in a participatory process with the neighborhood – became more and more attractive for Social Design Projects. But what exactly describes a Living Lab? What are the requirements, challenges and potentials of this approach? In this semester course we develop and implement concepts for Living Labs. The results will serve as an open source blueprint for Living Labs.

The semester course is part of the “Community Now?” bilateral project with the Bezalel Academy Jerusalem. In June 2014 the partner students will visit us in Berlin, the results will be presented at the symposium & exhibition in February 2015 in cooperation with the Jewish Museum Berlin.

The classes take place at the Community Now? Neighborhood Labat Mehringplatz 8.
