Let’s face it. The world isn’t perfect. But fear not: this year’s Sydney Design Festival theme of Call to Action will explore ways design can contribute to its betterment.
No two ways about it, Sydney Design Festival is going to be huge. From its hub at the Powerhouse Museum, it will reach far and wide throughout the city. With its theme of Call To Action, it will explore solutions to the world’s problems through disciplines as diverse as architecture, industrial design, jewellery making and even theatre. And it’s not just about Sydney, either.
The thing is, there are only ten days to see it all. To make your decision-making easier, Indesign has put together a list of top picks for Sydney’s fleeting annual design festival.
The Play Pod
Scott Carver & Hoyne asked themselves the exact same question, and layered it with an additional question: how can we better utilise city spots for this purpose? Instead of sitting on intellect, they made their answers into something tangible. The result is a low-cost and flexible pod – The Play Pod – that will sit on Sydney’s Good Line park for the duration of the Design Festival.
