ExperimentaDesign (EXD) is an international Biennale, taking place in Lisbon, Portugal, dedicated to design, architecture and creativity.
The theme of the 5th edition of EXD launches an in-depth analysis on the subject of time. Focusing primarily on the flows and mechanisms of acceleration and fragmentation, it then surveys its impacts across contemporary society, which manifest themselves at all levels: the development of objects and devices that heighten the capacities of the human being, the growing mobility of both individuals and information, the redesign of the space where collective life unfolds, changes in communication processes and the appearance of new structures and languages, or in other words, innovation.
Speakers include Paola Antonelli, Alice Rawsthorn, Ben Fry, Stefano Boeri and many more.
