The day of discussion and debate will take place at Google HQ in King’s Cross, with Summit talks addressing the impact of design: its power to cross borders, bridge cultures and alter behaviours and societies. The talks will look at how design can resonate in the fields of sustainability, politics, the digital world and how the work presented at the Biennale can resonate to global audiences with leading thinkers from design, government, and the diplomatic community.
