Faculty of Architecture


In continuation of the collaborative and creative spirit cultivated by previous INTDW gatherings,we proudly unveil the theme for this year's event: 


11th EMU International Design Week theme builds upon the established understandings of “symbiosis"as a relationship or interaction between entitiessharing similar habitats.Synonyms such as “together living"(as an association or close union of two or more dissimilar entities), and “mutualism"(asa cooperative relationship between persons or groups) are seamlessly integratedinto the fabric of this design week's narrative. 

Participants in a "symbiosis"-themed design week will delve into the concept of mutual benefit and interdependence in design. Drawing inspiration from symbiotic relationships found in nature, initiatives aimed at fostering harmonious interactions between various elements will be explored. Additionally, a deeper examination of  social relations in design may be prompted by the symbiotic concept, highlighting the potential for design to promote diversity, collaboration, and community engagement. 

This theme invites participants to explore the interconnectedness of nature, culture, and technology within the context of design. Through the lens of symbiosis, we aim to facilitate dialogue and collaboration to bridge gaps, foster understanding, and inspire innovative approaches to 21st-century design challenges. By integrating elements from the natural world, drawing inspiration from diverse cultural heritage, and harnessing cutting-edge technologies, our goal is to foster a holistic approach to design. 

Therefore, we are welcoming with the 11th Design Week:
