The exhibition «Interactive and Playful — Swiss Design from Zurich University of the Arts» features distinctive Bachelor, Master and research projects from the seven subject areas of the Department of Design at Zurich University of the Arts. The projects reflect the institute’s notion of design, how design is understood and taught today, and how design can contribute to social and technological innovations. They investigate how digitization and a conscious approach to it have taken over the discipline, and how designers deal with it in a strategic as well as critical way to impart knowledge.
