It’s Not Easy Being Green: Around the World with Aart and Paula

TYPO Berlin 2012, 17.05.2012, 20:00 Uhr (TYPO Show)

It’s Not Easy Being Green is the title of a research project by designers Paula Raché (German) and Aart van Bezooyen (Dutch). They asked themselves: »What is the role of design in creating a more sustainable future?«, and left their studios for 184 days looking for answers and ideas from around the world. After a dozen countries and some culture shocks, they returned home with their minds and bags full of discoveries worth sharing. They look back at their journey and give a preview of their upcoming book.
