Our “advent calendar” is finally on! Every day, another aspect of Christmas will be used to explain science and design in an exciting and entertaining way. One will be able to discover what makes snowflakes scientifically exciting, why earworms such as “Last Christmas” drill so deep into our brains, what archaeologists find fascinating about gingerbread, and how architects approach gift-wrapping. All the content will also be on display in the shop window of our office space at Gerbergasse 3 in Villach.
On a sunny weekend at the end of October, we gathered at Groppenstein castle near Mallnitz-Obervellach in Carinthia for our third meeting. We welcomed three new additions to the group: Gerhard Dorn, Dieter Gutschi, and Ugne Greivyte. We started off with a recap of recent developments regarding the Container Lab project, as well as our participation in the London Design Festival. This was followed by a discussion of future plans.
We recently had the chance to be a part of the London Design Festival, by contributing to the “Biodesign Here Now” exhibition at the OpenCell campus in Shepherd’s Bush. We installed our exhibition “See the invisible”, which we already had on display in Villach last Christmas. In addition, we conducted workshops in the Open Cell container lab that we designed the interior layout for and helped build back in May.
