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

Jurgen Bey is one of the most important contemporary designers and represents a radical and committed way of working that breaks with conventional expectations and explores the critical potential of design. His work ranges from furniture designs and installations in museums, including the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, to his teaching at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam, where he explores new approaches to design education. In his presentation, Bey will present selected projects and talk about his fascination with the Radical Design movement, which in the 1960s and 1970s developed new ways to criticise and raise questions through design. Free admission

Alexander Girard (1907 – 1993) was one of the most important textile artists of the 20th century. During his time working for Herman Miller, Girard designed over 300 textiles. Due to his meticulous planning, his fabric patterns radiate a calmness and balance despite the vivid colours used. After a short introduction to Girard ́s textiles in the exhibition »Alexander Girard. A Designer ́s Universe« participants design their own motifs for printing in this afternoon-long workshop. Using various textile printing methods, including thermal screen printing, participants create their own fabric prints for pillowcases, table cloths, cloth napkins and other home textiles.
Alexander Girard had a keen interest in the entertainment of guests and the art of dining. His restaurants and interiors facilitated social interaction. By fusing culinary enjoyment and lavish decoration he created places of true sensual pleasure. The design studio Bompas & Parr is a leader in contemporary food design and creates flavourbased experiences that merge the borders between art, architectural installation and dining. In this unique event, Sam Bompas will provide the audience with a taste of their sensuous work as well as some culinary surprises! Free admission, registration: email@example.com
