6-20 April 1975
Fifteen designers from fifteen different countries and five Austrian designers participated in this Interdesign. The event was organised by Osterreichisches Institut Für Formgebung (OIF) and was sponsored by the Serfaus community and local authorities.
At the time, Serfaus and the surrounding region (Comperdell) wished to establish an image of their own taking into consideration the characteristics of the area, climate, local traditions, and, on the other hand, tourism and sports requirements principally in the winter.
Safety in Winter Sports
Problems such as area development, traffic signals and auxiliary equipment were addressed. A special task was to provide a solution to catering needs in skiing areas.
Proposals were made regarding architecture, quality, tools/folk art, people/tourists, ecology/natural history. For example, recommendations included preservation of old mural paintings, and local buildings that were badly eroded, defining the limits of Serfaus while maintaining the character of the district, planting more trees, and making more information on the history of Serfaus readily accessible, particularly to foreigners.
