WDC 2014 themes
Design’s problem-solving capabilities have the potential to improve life – which is why Cape Town’s World Design Capital 2014’s overarching theme is:
Live Design. Transform Life.
The City of Cape Town’s not-for-profit, independent implementing agency, Cape Town Design has identified four sub-categories with which the programme aligns:
African Innovation. Global Conversation – African ideas that speak to the world
Bridging the Divide – Design that reconnects our city and reconciles our communities
Today for Tomorrow – Sustainable solutions for people and planet
Beautiful Spaces. Beautiful Things – Inspiring architecture, interiors, food, fashion, jewellery, craft, art and creativity
