Super Vernaculars, the theme for BIO27, explores a growing and ambitious movement that takes inspiration from vernacular design and architecture to shape a radical vision for a more responsive and resilient future. Alongside the main exhibition at The Museum of Architecture and Design and other commissions within the city centre, they are showcasing three different international design shows as part of the Satellite programme which intends to further explore and juxtapose alternative narratives and mythologies to the industrial and technocentric.
In cooperation with the German Design Graduates and Goethe Institut, the Design Campus awarded scholarships to three students.
The scholarship includes participation in a one-week workshop as well as board and lodging. Furthermore, the awarded students' graduation projects are displayed at BIO27 - Super Vernaculars, the 27th Biennial of Design, Ljubljana, curated by Jane Withers.
The graduates were nominated by public voting based on their final project’s affinity to material and utopic potentials, themes of the Design Campus Summer School, Class 2022 – The School of the Untold, curated by Formafantasma.
