Our second talk from Dutch Design Week explored how design can help refugees
Design's role in the ongoing refugee crisis is the focus of our next Good Design for a Bad World talk, which was the second in a five-part series we streamed from Dutch Design Week.
Dutch Design Week international ambassador Marcus Fairs hosted the discussion, which questioned how design, architecture and urbanism could make life easier for refugees and host communities.
He was joined by former refugee camp manager and humanitarian consultant Kilian Kleinschmidt to discuss how the urban design of refugee camps could be improved. Also on the panel are architecture historian Michelle Provoost and critic Rene Boer, who examined whether design can stem the tide of population movements.
Dezeen hosted five panel discussions as part of the Good Design for a Bad World initiative. The talks were free to attend, and took place at the People's Pavilion at KetelHuisplein 1, in the Strijp-S district of Eindhoven.
Our final talk of the day explored the theme of terrorism within the context of urban design.
