Oskar Bell“Designing beyond an architectural restoration.Santa Maria Cathedral of Vitoria-Gasteiz”.Cultural Heritage Conservation has become in a complextask due to not only the accurate work of restoration andresearching itself, but also, due to requirement of sharingthe whole process. An historic building in a very baddegree of conservation should be an opportunity todiscover our past, to ensure our present cultural activityand to prepare the future generations to take care of theHeritage. Thus, it is not a work for one or two persons, onthe contrary different points of view from differentdisciplines must draft and manage the plan in order tosucceed. Our mind and the initial plan have to beconstantly opened during the process. Instead of time, thebuilding, which is different and unique each time, and itsusers are the most important subjects. That is what hasbeen developing during the last 20 years of works at SantaMaria Cathedral of Vitoria, lets see the keys of the theprocess beyond an architectural restoration.

Alberto Prado"Is there a universal design in technology?"The quest for a superior global design, one that brings instant meaning to technologyand eases barriers of adoption regardless of cultural background, has been at thecentre of strategic shifts, large (and in many cases wasted) investments and ultimatelya decisive factor in splitting fortunes between winners and losers in the technologybattlefield. Starting off with the handset industry and finishing with a view andoutlook on the more generic space of consumer products, this presentation takes usin the journey from the dominance of hardware design, via the revolution of software,all the way to the emergence of experience-centric proposition design as thedarwinistic thread in the pursuit of the holy grail.
Xabier Zirikiain"Thanks god dreaming is free”One of the things I love most in life is lying in bed anddream, watching the clouds. The only problem I have withthe clouds, is that I can not control my dreams. I might startthinking of a present for my son and end up finding asolution for the lay out of a new store.. just like fishing younever know what fish is on your way, but you have to throwthe line!.I am not a design teacher so I can only talk of my ownexperience, I dont know how other people work, what istheir process. I just want to share three cases of dreambecoming real. Three different projects in size or nature. Allwith common horizontal origins. Thanks god dreaming isfree!
