How would design education in 2050 look like? Beat Karrer and Kristina Pröhl showed the potential of external design workshops inside the education area of the singapore design festival. The showcases of the two Boisbuchet Vitra Design Museum workshops "manufactured nature" and "molded nature" helped to point out the advantages of a - slightly or very - different view onto the design process.
