One more year, IED Barcelona celebrates the Best Thesis Awards that collect the best projects in each of the four areas of the school. The work done in these theses has been compromised by an exceptional situation: a global pandemic. However, in these difficult moments, creativity and design have helped us on facing new future challenges and creating new solutions to build a better society.
These four theses, for example, propose innovative alternatives for mobility and urbanization in the future cities, spaces that help humans to reconnect with nature, fashion collections that are made in a sustainable way, and new services that reinforce the feeling between user and experience.
The winners from this year’s edition are the following:
Frequenza, by Valentina Loffa
Seat DNA, by Emma Ek, Marián Ruíz and Miguel Ángel De la Campa
Koyaaniskatsi, by Carla Corpas
Travel Wonders written for You, by Nicole Pagnut
