W/O - We are the next generation (Week van het Ontwerpen) returns for an exciting 10th edition during the Biennanle INTERIEUR 2014 from 17 to 26 October at the Buda Factory venue in the heart of Kortrijk. During the ten day event, vistors will be offered a glimpse of what creative education in Flanders has to offer today.
The exhibition shows a selection of student projects of creative education institutions in Flanders in the following design areas: Product Design, Architecture (Interiors-Buildings-Public Spaces-Landscapes) & Multimedia Design.
For the composition of the exhibition the organization of W/O was assisted by five experts, each with expertise in a different domain: Filip De Pau, city architect of Eeklo (BE); Stefan Vanderick, CRAS; Katja Lucas, Dutch Design Week; Eric Dumortier, GBO Design; Anne Van Assche en Hanna Moens, Baroness O.
Important parameters in the composition of the exhibition as a coherent representation of Flemisch design education were: economic relevance, suitability for exhibition purposes, forward-looking vision of the students and projects of school year 2013-2014.
