Jury member in aed "neuland" prize 2015
With the generous support of the Karl Schlecht Foundation, aed organizes the “neuland” award, a competition for young, up-and-coming designers. The aim is to promote innovative and sustainable design, which is characterized by the highest possible quality in economic and ecological terms, and which is both functional and user-friendly, while meeting the highest aesthetic demands.
People and a design’s advantages for society should always be at the center of the design. The “neuland” competition is deliberately interdisciplinary and includes five categories: Architecture & Engineering, Exhibition & Public Design, Industrial & Product Design, Communication & Graphic Design, Mobility & Transportation Design.
