The aim of the World Design Capital project is to promote and encourage the use of design to further the social, economic and cultural development of the world’s cities. In this spirit, the designation honours those cities that use design to revitalise and reinvent their urban environment. The World Design Capital is a biennial designation awarded to cities to showcase their design merits with national and international audiences.
