World Design Summit

Betsy will be in Montreal on October 17th, at the World Design Summit speaking about WWInc’s work on Inter-generational homes. An international multi-disciplinary, multi-modal, solution-oriented congress, the World Design Summit is an international incubator for re-thinking the mission of the designer and the design process. This is about more than just the latest trends – it is about the designer’s role as a creative leader in society, business, culture and governance. Designers, architects, planners and landscape architects are gathering for the first time under one roof to share perspectives, foster collaboration and cross-pollinate innovative ideas. This is about our future. And how to transform it together by design.

You’ll find me at the World Design Summit because the world is facing complex challenges. The more complex the problem, the more the need for synthesis; if there is any power in Design, that’s the power of synthesis. – ALEJANDRO ARAVENA, WDS Congress Keynote and 2016 Pritzker prize winner
