Best of the 2nd Istanbul Design Biennial

What is the future now? For the second Istanbul Design Biennial (Nov 1- Dec 14) curators Zoe Ryan and Meredith Carruthers have asked designers to reconsider the ways in which works move society forward. Like a manifesto. Is the word “manifesto” one that we still relate to? The Biennial is an effort “to reclaim the manifesto for critical thinking in design” through an exploration of times past and times to come. Here are some projects that are worth checking out:
