Internationa New Designers Workshop
This multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary workshop, for both young designers and students, was founded in 2000 and held annually. The project aims to nurture the future generation, which is courageous in challenging convention. We invite those in the vanguard of frontier fields, as well as professionals conducting academic research. The goal is to facilitate networking among participants in barrier-free, collaborative work among those in educational environments and those pursuing diverse professional disciplines.
