Traditional education, with its focus on theoretical knowledge, will not sufficiently prepare us for the Next Economy, argues Daan Zandbelt, partner of De Zwarte Hond and Lead Designer of the IABR–Atelier Rotterdam. As innovation will more and more be embedded in the production process itself, a learning method is called for that goes beyond theory: learning by doing.
Starting with the IABR–Atelier Rotterdam, in his tour Zandbelt will therefore focus on those projects that propose an approach to urban development that insists on bringing back manufacturing to the city not just as a way to provide for meaningful work, but foremost as a strategy for making better city.
