In 2021, Pakhuis de Zwijger’s extensive two-year programme Designing Cities for All (DCFA) commenced with the support of the Creative Industry Fund NL. This programme focuses on the role of designers in shaping and creating cities for and by everyone. For this program a lot of people with different backgrounds, talents and specialisations came together to provide their own input on how to design inclusive cities. Further information about the program and the past and future fellows can be found on their webpage.
According to ,this book contains 18 essays about the concept of belonging, the impact of design, and how to make it designing cities for all work, in which the authors share stories from their professional practice and lived experience. The book will be available as of December 13. For more information take a look at the website and social media of Pakhuis de Zwijger.
