The project takes in consideration questions like: “What kind of a potential do small sized enterprises and production areas provide for designers and creative disciplines?”, “How can designers contribute to the sustainable development of such production areas?”. The aim is to show more creative visions for urban transformation and to point out other possibilities in the relationship between design and production.
