For housing corporation Woonbedrijf CvdBremen developed the concept of The Social Design Street, an exhibition that took place during the Dutch Design Week 2016 in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Woonbedrijf embeds Social Design for years by addressing social issues. The use of Social Design in relation to these types of social themes does not always culminate in a physical object and yet there is still so much to show! To make the invisible (co-) design processes and solutions visible, we
developed a dynamic exhibition with a program of daily breakfast sessions, workshops and presentations.The Social Design street was literally a street with ‘pop-up’ houses build by Uit de Buurtfabriek with B-wood, that came from demolished houses. In every house a different theme was highlighted, where the designers shared their projects with the visitors. They explained how they worked together with residents on a safer and sustainable neighborhood. How they enable a pleasant living
environment for elderly. And how they think along in housing refugees with a residence permit. In an interactive expo we showed how residents, organisations from the neighorhood and professional designers work togehter on a culture project around current issues. Often the Buurtcultuurfonds Woonbedrijf stimulates and facilitates these projects. View the press file here.
