The World Design Capital is a project of the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid).While there are many awards that recognise individual accomplishments in design, the World Design Capital designation is unique as it aims to docus on the broader essence of design’s impact on urban spaces, economies and citizens. This designation provides a distinctive opportunity for cities to feature their accomplishments in attracting and promoting innovative design, as well as highlight their successes in urban revitalisation strategies.
