Heritage is innovation

Design dialogue

The “Heritage Design Dialogue” and sharing takes place- weather permitting on the rooftop of Haw Par mansion- Friday 20th September 2019. Topic focuses on ‘DESIGN INNOVATION & CULTURAL HERITAGE’, highlighting the role of heritage, history, and archives in design, and the significance of innovation in materiality, craft-making, and design thinking in contemporary culture.
