Design at Large presents large-scale works of historical and contemporary design, showcasing ambitious architectural installations that feature both conceptual and industrial innovation. Design at Large is intended to be a site of discovery for visitors to Design Miami/ Basel, presenting a selection of works that explore a particular theme inspired by current topics in design. Each edition is curated by a global tastemaker with a true love of design and a keen eye for present and future icons.
The 2016 Design at Large program will focus on the theme of Landscape, exploring the connections between the built and natural worlds from a literal, poetic, scientific or technological perspective. Proposals will be accepted for works as varied as architectural follies, pop-up gardens, culinary experiments and prototypes for urban farms. The program will celebrate the beauty and bounty of nature through the varied perspectives of the participants.
