Background information on »Konstantin – Grcic Panorama«

The exhibition »Konstantin Grcic - Panorama« features much information pertaining to current debates on the future of living, working and public space. This research illustrates the framework within which Grcic views his work as a designer. It also shows how intensely – and at times controversially – the future of design is discussed and makes evident the ties to other disciplines such as urbanism, architecture, art, sociology and natural sciences. The newspaper that accompanies the exhibition contains examples of research relating to all these points. It can be downloaded as a PDF here.
