As we mentioned before the Knowledge company Designboost went to Milan Design Week and made a MiniBoost to explore the personal viewpoint of sustainable cities of some of the worlds most acknowledged designers.
The MiniBoost resulted in thirteen unique interviews. Now Designboost releases the six last interviews which incude Erwan and Ronan Bouroullec, James Irvine, Kristina Dryza, Patricia Urquiola, Richard Hutten and Tim Power. The seven first interviews was released a couple of weeks ago and included personalities like Ilse Crawford, Tom Dixon, Konstantin Grcic, Arik Levy, Ross Lovegrove, Katrin Olina and Satyendra Pakhale. The interview above is with Patricia Urquiola. You will find all interviews by following this link.
The questions asked look at sustainable cities from a holistic point of view and touch among other subjects sustainability according to cultural life, emotional amplification and the personal stories of the inhabitants. The questions are written by different Boosters at the DesignBoost 2008 key event “Long Live the City” in Malmö, Sweden. One may say that the MiniBoost is like a relay race with questions as batons passed on to new Boosters.
