This workshop promotes design schools, encourages the creation of an international network of young designers and establishes partnerships between schools and manufacturers.

This year's workshop theme is "Investigating the Modern Legacy". The teams will re-imagine and redefine the boundaries of design. It is in this context that Artefacto has given the students access to its URBASEE application, in order to allow them to integrate an additional dimension to the project. Design and Augmented Reality are going to mix!
