The installation »BLESS N°56 Worker's Delight« is more working space than exhibition and encourages us to reconsider our daily work at the computer. Visitors are invited, by means of various objects, to find new connections between movement and work. At the end of the presentation in the Vitra Design Museum Gallery, the designer duo Bless will take stock and present, among other things, some pieces from the new collection BLESS N°57. Free admission
The pleasures of walking the Rehberger-Weg naturally include its artworks and grapevines, physical exercise and museums. But if we look upwards and gaze out into the distance, we can savor a further delight: the elevation gained by climbing a few extra meters up into the vineyards allows us to see beyond the rooftops and enjoy a magnificent panorama of the Basel landscape. This area around the bend in the Rhine is special in many respects—geographically, economically and politically, as well as geologically and topographically. From here we gain a new sense of boundlessness, since the national borders can barely be read in the face of the city and countryside. Register here

There’ll be some puzzles to solve too. After that you will build your own miniature chairs. For children from 6 to 12 years. € 7.00 per child, registration: firstname.lastname@example.org
David Peterson shows the close connections between design, language and communication. Peterson has done work for the science fiction series »Defiance« and the series »Game of Thrones«, for which he devised the Dothraki language. The art of inventing languages fascinates linguists as well as authors, artists and creative professionals. Well-known examples are the Elvish languages invented by J. R. R. Tolkien for »The Lord of the Rings«, or the Klingon language from »Star Trek«. Alexander Girard also devised various languages for his imaginary country, the »Republic of Fife«. In his presentation, Peterson will explain how he goes about inventing languages, showing that it involves far more than simply specifying their words and sounds.

Following their exhibition »Album« in 2012, internationally renowned designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec return to the Vitra Campus in October 2016. The exhibition »Rêveries Urbaines« at the Zaha Hadid Fire Station presents concepts for urban development, and is a wide-ranging study of possible development solutions for cities that may be imagined in very different urban settings. Like a large open sketchbook, the proposed solutions are presented as a gentle walk through models and animations. The exhibition is designed to be immersive and to bear the visitor away into different scenarios, with each model showcased as a chapter in an urban fiction.
A walk with artist Tobias Rehberger and distiller Christoph Keller. The walk is free of charge. Advance registration is necessary, as places are limited. Register here

Urban development is increasingly shaped by informal processes and the influence of cultural and social projects that enhance urban space. Landscape planning interventions, art projects or temporary uses can give decisive impulses for reinterpreting urban space and experiencing it as residents - this can be observed both internationally and in the Basel region. After a keynote speech, Philippe Cabane, an independent consultant for urban strategies, Christof Mayer of Raumlaborberlin and regional representatives will discuss the opportunities such projects offer: What kind of developments do they induce? How can the institutions and their dynamics be embedded? What kinds of urban challenges can they solve? In collaboration with IBA Basel, moderation: Monica Linder-Guarnaccia. Free admission
