Design Tour
The Glasgow World Design Congress ’93 and Nordic Design

A 26-member Delegation is organized to visit design promoting institutions and design firms in Scandinavia, after which the group will proceed to Glasgow, Scotland to attend “Design Renaissance”, the third joint congress of the three world design bodies : Icograda, ICSID, and IFI. Scandinavian countries have already achieved status as world-leaders in fields like social welfare, living enviroment and the advance of women’s roles in society. Also, Scandinavian design and manufacturing styles ensure uniqueness in addition to universal appeal, a fusion long favored by people throughout the world. The tour will offer us a good opportunity to re-examine social problems in our own country that relate to design. The design centers of every country we visit will cooperat to have us meet with their designers. We visit 23 places, including leading corporate bodies, design institutions and design offices.
