The lecture addressed socially engaged and sustainable design in Poland. It referred to the exhibition “The Logic of the Local. Norwegian and Polish Contemporary Design”, on show at the ICC Gallery at the turn of 2016 and 2017.


The design – of buildings, urban space or everyday objects – has a significant impact on our lives. Apart from the fact that it shapes our everyday life, it also affects the natural environment. That is why the professions of architects and designers come with particular responsibility. The goal of people who create our material environment should not be so much to design elite, expensive, and luxurious objects, but to work against social inequalities, promote sustainable use of resources, and reduce carbon footprint.


The lecture took place online via Zoom. Participation in the lecture was free of charge.
