Design Biotop is an experimental and discussion platform that explores the problem solving and trans-disciplinary nature of design, and promotes a design thinking mindset and its impact on social, political and economic challenges by developing grass root projects promoting interdisciplinary connections and collaborations.
All Design Biotop events call for action from all levels of society and strive to nurture active participation, where individuals could learn from direct experience, co-working and open sharing.
What we strive is to carve out long term projects based on System design.
Based on the responses deriving from the Design Biotop conference in November 2013 in Kino Šiška, we decided to continue the Design Biotop series with the in depth workshop, focusing on the potential of data visualization in decision making processes and the potential of such visualizations in understanding and solving complex problems. Design Biotop was awarded best accompanying event of BIO 50:NOW.
We try to multiply the effect of our international connections by collaborating with different Slovenian organizations and media on each of our projects. On recent projects we successfully collaborated with Ljudmila, Kino Šiška, ALUO, SPIRIT Slovenia – Public Agency of the Republic of Slovenia for the Promotion of Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Development, Investment and Tourism, MAD, Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of economic development and technology, different galleries, public spaces companies and individuals).
