Established in 2004, the State of Design Festival is the largest and most innovative design event in Australia and the heart of design thinking and design activity. State of Design Festival increases the awareness of the value of design and showcases how design generates innovation, promotes sustainability and adds value to business and society. Festival programs demonstrate and broadly communicate how the Victorian and Australian design profession can improve living conditions, create sustainable development opportunities, and generate new and innovative products and services; in turn, providing economic benefit for the state of Victoria. This year the Festival theme, Design That Moves, explores design in, on and around projects that are transformative, mobile and networked. Workshops and forums examine the nomadic, the cyclical and the role of design systems. We are keen to understand how we can use design to create more active cities and we present events in transitional zones: platforms, revitalised spaces, foyers and stairs. These are 'spaces that take us places'. We also examine how design affects us mentally and physically. We ask, 'how does design influence our experience of objects and environments, how does design influence how we feel?' For the 2011 Festival, motion and emotion are cause for renewed thinking around design.

2011 Festival Guide

Marie Kinsella AEC Managing Director

We like to think about the 2011 Festival theme – Design That Moves – in both a physical and emotional sense. We’ve used a rolling mix of primary forms and bright colours so that the design works on a number of levels: all ages, all languages and with a range of potential meanings from the most simple to the highly symbolic. We are as interested in the pure moments of resolution, when the shapes are unmistakably formed, as we are in the fuzzy moments in between. It’s a design that we hope will develop into a conversation. —SouthSouthWest

Design is the cornerstone of innovation. The way we apply design influences how our businesses grow and compete and shapes our quality of life. The Government hopes to see design take centre stage in the development of innovative products and services in Victoria. The Government also wants to see design recognised more often for the critical role it plays giving Victorian companies an edge over their competitors. In the 2011 State of Design Festival, you will see, hear and experience some of the best examples of design. Be moved by the many and varied displays of design, engage in the discussions, and interact and learn from the diverse program. As a consumer or business owner, I urge you to take advantage of the largest concentration of design content in the nation. The Hon Louise Asher MP Minister for Innovation, Services and Small Business Minister for Tourism and Major Events

Design is so much part of our lives that we sometimes don’t even notice it. It’s in our homes, our workplaces, our schools and public spaces. Design is in the cars, bicycles, trams, trains and buses that move us from place to place. Victoria is the most celebrated design state and I am proud of the rich design heritage that made it that way. From architecture and urban planning, to fashion and automotive, Victorian designers have a compelling story to tell.

On the top floor of the GPO sits Melbourne’s ‘zero’ point, this is where the distance of every place from the city is measured. This special site is also the home of the pop-up Festival hub – a shared environment for collective design activity and observation. Programmed activity will take place morning, noon and night for the second week of the Festival. View an exhibition or installation, take part in a workshop, listen to a talk, browse the design reading room or watch designers at work. Dynamic and evolving, the Do Design Space is part installation, part classroom, part studio, part laboratory – the environment builds as ideas are formed. Walls become exhibition spaces, filled with new propositions as they are developed. At the heart of the space, is the ‘Micro-kitchen by Broadsheet’. Carefully curated, the kitchen brings together outstanding Melbourne chefs, designers and local produce. Each day, a designer will brief a chef to ‘design’ a soup of the day. The designers will determine the colour, texture, consistency and name of the soup. They will then work actively with the chef who will ultimately bring the soup to life. Also featuring local craft beer, wine and coffee, the Micro-kitchen will be the place to meet for informal debate before and after Festival events. Register to attend a special event or drop-in for a bowl of soup and to see design in action.

Design That Moves

Page 14

‘‘When I look at making spaces, I don’t just look at the visual. I’m much more interested in the sensory thing, in thinking about it from the human context, the primal perspective, the thing that touches you.’’ — Ilse Crawford, The New York Times

The 9 to 5 Talks Program is a series of live, Skype conversations held in partnership with the Wheeler Centre over five days of the Festival. In a Q&A format, Melbourne’s leading designers and visionaries will pose nine critical questions to five of the world’s most important design thinkers working in fashion, graphic design, education, interior design, industrial design and architecture. Join these free Q&A Skype sessions with Ilse Crawford, Troika, Kyung-won Chung, Milton Glaser and Gareth Pugh. Underscoring the Festival theme, Design That Moves, each of the invited design thinkers has a practice closely engaged by issues and ideas such as design and emotional authenticity, design systems, global navigation and mobility, the social impact of design and fashion design that literally moves. Each interview will run for approximately one hour and will be followed by a brief intermission and a 30 minute discussion forum. This forum is a chance to ‘unpack’ the interview and join an industryrelevant panel discussion with local designers.

Design for an active city is a competition open to all Victorian designers that calls for propositions to enhance and activate a major thoroughfare in central Melbourne

Just 30 minutes of exercise each day can help prevent serious chronic diseases such as obesity, however, over the past 50 years, for urban communities there has been a huge lifestyle shift from being highly physically active to predominately sedentary (World Health Organisation 2004, Edwards & Tsourous 2006). Design can play a major role in stimulating increased physical activity, either through interventions in the built environment or through the design of new systems and social programs. The Design for an Active City competition calls for implementable, site-specific proposals to improve the pedestrian experience on the Collins Street Bridge and thereby increase pedestrian activity. The expected outcome of the competition is an installation to be in place on-site for at least three months. Project partner VicUrban will provide $25,000 (inclusive of design fees of $5,000) to develop, construct and install the winning project on the bridge. The Collins Street Bridge is part of Melbourne’s premier street, linking the CBD and Southern Cross Station with Melbourne’s waterfront in Docklands. Stretching 350 metres from Spencer Street to Batman’s Hill Drive, this section will eventually melt into the street landscape and will look and feel like other parts of Collins Street, with buildings on both sides, continuous tree plantings and activity from pedestrians and trams. However, while development is still in progress, there are sections of the bridge that are very exposed to the elements which is affecting the pedestrian experience from Southern Cross Station into Docklands. The competition opened on 25 May, 2011 and closes on 6 July, 2011. On 25 July, the Design for an Active City jury will unveil the top competition submissions and announce the winner through a public presentation and discussion at the Do Design Space (pages 12–13) The jury is seeking submissions that will stimulate increased physical activity in city commuters, demonstrate how design can make our urban environments safer, healthier and more enjoyable and improve the visual quality and pedestrian experience of the bridge. The winning entry will be sustainable in terms of material choice and use, inventive, low-cost and easily installed on the site. The most exciting propositions will be on public display from 25–29 July at the Do Design Space. Visit the exhibition for new thinking and inventive models from Melbourne’s leading designers about how we can improve public space.

An event devised in Tokyo in 2003 for young designers to meet and show their work in public, PechaKucha events are now happening in over 400 cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of ‘chit chat’, the PechaKucha format is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. Presentations are concise, keeping things moving at a rapid pace.

A great title sequence can pre-empt a film with serious wow-factor. Title sequences build anticipation and frame the mood. Sometimes they’re better than the film itself. For this presentation a selection of designers from various fields will present some of the best and most talked about title designs. They will share the sequences that have moved them and the ones that have left their mark in cinema history. Presented by Speakeasy Cinema, this is a casual forum for film fans, designers and cinefiles alike. Presenters: Andrew Ashton, Studio Pip & Co.; Dirk de Bruyn, Experimental Filmmaker; Dom Bartolo, 21-19; Suzy Tuxen, A Friend of Mine; Stuart Geddes, Chase & Galley; Warren Taylor, The Narrows.

LONDON (UK)

Page 24

Every day for a city the size of London, enough food for thirty million meals must be produced, imported, sold, cooked, eaten and disposed. While Melbourne may be a smaller city, a similar process happens here. Given this effort, it is remarkable that those of us living in cities get to eat at all. Carolyn Steel is an architect, lecturer and author and who has been invited to Australia to host forums concentrating on food consumption in cities with a particular focus on urban agriculture. Steel’s chief interest is in exploring how cities are shaped by food and her work has centred on developing a lateral approach to urban design by looking at the everyday routines that shape cities and the way we inhabit them. Her book, Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives (Random House, 2008), won the Royal Society of Literature Jerwood Award for Non-Fiction and was later featured on a special edition of Radio 4’s The Food Programme. Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives follows food’s journey from land to city, through market and supermarket, kitchen and table, waste-dump and back again, to show how food affects all our lives, and impacts on the planet. The final chapter asks how we might use food to re-think cities in the future – how to design them and their hinterlands more efficiently, and enhance their liveability. Carolyn will also be appearing at associated events in Sydney, for information please see the State of Design Festival website.

Bookings: stateofdesign.com.au Australia is one of the most urbanised countries on earth. In Victoria, nearly 75% of the population lives in major cities. Do not miss this important keynote address that will inspire new thinking around how we can sustainably feed our growing metropolises. Carolyn Steel’s keynote address will highlight how feeding cities arguably has a greater social and physical impact on the planet and us than anything else we do. Yet, too few of us in the developed world are aware of the process. Food arrives on our plates as if by magic, and we rarely stop to wonder how it might have got there. Recent extreme weather and peak oil prices have sent the cost of food soaring, while supermarket price wars mean produce is being valued at unsustainably low levels. The conversation around how cities can be designed more productively with appropriate pockets of urban agriculture and smarter food networks, is one that we need to consider seriously. This lecture will stimulate discussion around food security, accessibility, production, consumption and distribution. Roll Up Bicycle Valet Parking will be available at this event from 30 minutes before the start time.

Our daily need to eat shapes our existence, yet for the majority of us, it also creates a paradox. We live in cities, while our food comes from elsewhere: a place we may refer to as 'the countryside', although the word bears little resemblance to the realities of modern food production. With the global urban population set to double by 2050, the feeding of cities is set to dominate the political, economic and ecological agenda for years to come. For architects and planners, the question of how to design and build must be weighed against a backdrop of social migration, diminishing resources and climate change. The scale and complexity of the task demands a broadening of the architectural and urban design discourse. New tools are needed, in order to understand the issues at hand, and make best use of our collaborative creative potential. Food is one such tool. Mankind's most vital shared commodity, food is embedded in our lives socially, physically, and symbolically. Join this intimate workshop, led by Carolyn Steel to explore how we can harness food’s power to shape the world better.

Cost: Free

Watch ten teams from around the world come together to compete in an actionpacked, hands-on, game plan competition. Participants will apply through a formal process, travel to Melbourne, and meet their teammates and attend a symposium as part of pre-event preparations. As things get started, sites will be announced, mission statements and briefs will be received, and the teams will be given a budget and a deadline of 72 hours to design, construct and install their projects. They will camp on-site and live and breathe their site until it is complete! The winning team will be awarded with fun, fame and fortune! The previously unused sites offer a unique opportunity for this kind of temporary design event to exist, injecting the urban landscape with playfulness, and opening our everyday spaces to possible futures that are experiential adaptive. Come along on a guided tour of the sites, watch the action and give feedback to the teams. Presented by: RMIT University

Did you also know, that water heating accounts for 25 per cent of the energy used in an average Australian home*. By simply installing a more energy efficient hot water system for your home, taking in to account your household size and water use patterns, it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and can save you money on energy bills. What are some common questions to consider when upgrading your household hot water system? > The selection of the correct hot water system for your household needs will be based on your specific situation, including; number of people living in the house, the existing hot water system, current and future household needs, gas availability, available government rebates, availability of space, and local climatic zone.

State of Design Festival 2011

> Does your household currently run out of hot water? If this is the case, your needs have changed over time and you need a different hot water system with a larger capacity. > You also need to consider the cost savings that an energy efficient hot water system can provide. So, in spending a little more initially, you will save in the long run on energy bills. Bosch offer a wide range of domestic and commercial hot water systems that are suitable for today’s customers’ requirements. Bosch are committed to producing premium quality hot water products, that boast high energy efficiency ratings.
