Design Does* is organised by the Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) and Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (Lee Wai Lee), co-curated by ELISAVA Barcelona School of Design and Engineering and Domestic Data Streamers and co-produced by the Design Museum of Barcelona. Design Does* collectively explores how design tackles the challenges faced by society, at times offering improvements and, at others, doing just the opposite.

Conceived to transcend the limits of space, time and conventional formats, this project explores the responsibility that is inherent in design and the impact of design on industry, people, social systems and cultural values. Design Does questions the designer’s role today and in the future as a provider of solutions, humanist, strategist and agent of change.

Design Does, as a project, contains a significant technological component and is intended to create a dynamic space for interaction and experimentation that promotes dialogue with visitors. Through real-time data collection and display, visitors will interact with the exhibits and share their sensations, reactions and opinions. The exhibition will also serve as a centre of operations, connecting an extensive programme of activities and initiatives.
