MEDS – Meeting of design students – is an international association developed by and for design students from different European countries. It was founded in 2010 with an aim to bring together European students of architecture, interior architecture, industrial design, graphic design, etc. to work on the same project on an international level and explore practical world of designing.
With this idea MEDS organizes an annual event, usually lasting ten days, which takes place each summer in a different European city.
The main goal of MEDS is to share international experiences and knowledge to generate new and fresh ideas, to enrich the city in which the workshop takes place, and as a participant to become part of something bigger; an exciting and dynamic design community.

Brief

WORKSHOP 2012:sensABILITY – LJUBLJANA, SLOVENIA (5.-17.8.2012)
The five senses are fundamental to our everyday perceptions of the world. Designers strive to stimulate feelings and emotions based on people’s reactions to their senses in a particular environment. Unfortunately, in contemporary culture we are sensually biased: visual qualities predominate.
sensABILITY aims to free the participant from this visually driven world.
Workshops will strive to liberate our sense of touch, sound, smell and potentially even taste, to give us a richer understanding and appreciation of the designed world around us.
There are many accessories designed to help and guide us through the city, causing us to become passive in attitude and less aware of the space that surrounds us. Traffic lights, zebra crossings and pavements have made it almost unnecessary for pedestrians to observe each other. Let’s change this and regenerate our senses!

Eligibility

MEDS workshop is available for all students of design across Europe and beyond. MEDS 2012 in Ljubljana is limited to 7 students per country; participants will be chosen based on a poster competition before the workshop and tutors are chosen based on a project competition.
The capacity of MEDS 2012 workshop will be increased to 250 students from 30 European countries. Students will be accommodated in the center of Ljubljana, where workshop will be held.
