Nanotourism has been awarded with the the exhibition’s highest honour the Best Collaboration Award
by the BIO50 jury (Konstantin Grcic, Saša J. Maechtig, Alice Rawsthorn).
We were tremendously impressed by the quality, dynamism and originality of the projects in BIO 50, especially as they address so many important and contentious issues facing contemporary design. In an intensely turbulent era when we face radical, potentially destructive changes on so many fronts, BIO 50 plays an indispensible role in suggesting possible solutions thanks to the diligence, determination and vision of Jan Boelen and his gifted collaborators.
The Best Collaboration Award at BIO 50: nanotourism
nanotourism is an outstanding example of design ingenuity being used to reinvent and reinvigorate an important area of the Slovenian and other economies.
The quality of the individual projects is exceptionally high. They are original, appealing and so pragmatic that they promise to endure. From a collaborative perspective, Nanotourism is both ambitious and highly complex and has dealt with a range of local communities with sensitivity and charm, while demonstrating the ever more eclectic nature of design and its potential to improve the quality of everyday life.
