Transforming People & Places

Successful Start of the new event series

The kick-off event of the new event series took place at the end of November. Jointly initiated by IDZ and our corporate member, the Berlin creative agency Archimedes Exhibitions, the series creates a space for exchange and discussion between designers and the residents of our city.

We are very much looking forward to the continuation!
