Dezeen catalogs programming at the 2018 Business of Design Week in Hong Kong; featuring a Master Class by Design Principal Carol Ross Barney.

“Architects Ben van Berkel, Ron Arad and Toyo Ito are among the line-up of speakers announced for this year’s Business of Design Week conference – and Dezeen readers get 30 per cent off tickets.

The annual event returns to Hong Kong from 3 to 8 December, 2018, and will explore the theme “Think, Collaborate, Create”.

These ideas will infuse more than 20 events that fall under the umbrella of Business of Design Week, including the keystone BODW Summit, which boasts luminaries from the design and architecture industries as speakers.

For the first time in 2018, Business of Design Week will also present a public programme called BODW City Programme, with the goal of strengthening Hong Kong’s creative community and fostering collaborations between designers and businesses.

The BODW Summit will also feature a masterclass led by Carol Ross Barney, the pioneering principal of Ross Barney Architects who was the first woman to design a federal building in the US. She will discuss the making of liveable cities and how to design for social good.”
