Profile of team.breathe.austria
Global environmental issues are among the most important challenges of our time. In order to tackle the highly complex tasks of this challenge, we need the cooperation of many actors and to think and work across disciplines. For the project breathe.austria an independent transdisciplinary group of individuals came together – the team.breathe.austria.
The open and non-hierarchical way of working in a team, and collaboration with specialists from various disciplines, is based on the joint work in recent years on the subject of performance of landscape, vegetation and air. On this basis, a design was created, which concentrates innovative ideas on the theme of “air” compacted into a concept: “Breathe.Austria – A pavilion that breathes“. More than 2.4 million people experienced the hybrid landscape which combines nature and technology during the six month at the Expo in Milan.

Shenzhen Design Award For Young Talents
The design award called Shenzhen Design Award for Young Talents (SZ+DAY) was held for the second time by the Shenzhen City of Design Promotion Office and the Shenzhen City of Design Promotion Association (SDPA) in association and cooperation with UNESCO Creative Cities Network. This year’s competition was themed “Transformation: the Mission of Design”. This year’s competition was themed “Transformation: the Mission of Design” and invited designers under 35 years old, and architects under 40 years old, to join in.
According to SDPA, the goal of the design award was to encourage global young designers to make contributions to create greener, more environmentally friendly and sustainable cities. The project also aims to encourage exchange between young talents from different countries, cooperation between creative cities, and the sharing of experiences and ideas for developing creative and cultural industries. Coming from various design backgrounds, young designers submitted design entries ranging from product design to architectural design.
According to the Jury the winning team, Breathe Austria, won the grand award with its design for an environmental protection project.
