Geo-Design: Budget Airlines Groundbreaking design-research exhibition

Curators: Martina Muzi, Joseph Grima

Design Academy alumni explore the effect of budget airlines on humans, the environment, politics

During this year’s Dutch Design Week the fifth edition of Geo-Design takes place in the old building. The Van Abbemuseum and Design Academy Eindhoven (DAE) join forces in this project entitled Budget Airlines. This edition focuses on budget airlines and the worldwide impact thereof on humans, the environment, politics and the social climate. Over the past three decades, the airline industry has undergone dramatic change as a result of the tactics and mechanisms behind these low-cost carriers.

Open call

As in previous editions, an open call went out to DAE alumni to explore an aspect of this issue and submit a research proposal on that topic. The chosen entrants have three months during which to carry out their research, design and present their conclusions.

Geo-Design

Projects in the Geo-Design series are based on current global issues and sit at the intersection of scientific research, journalism, conceptualisation and design.
