The conference centered on a few main topics that somehow came from most amazing speakers. I saw many cats in all videos and audios, it made me long for my cat Adam who died two years ago during Design Indaba. (Tear)

Most designers, architects and artists used perforation to create texture, lightness, dimension and play. From a perforated poster, to a perforated conceptcar, to a perforated facade to a perforated building. People slicing out inner parts of buildings as if emptying an apple from its core. And then the stairs and bridges and tables that connect people in big corporations and public spaces. Like ribbons these stairs and bridges and tables stream through space for happiness.

The body was omni present in hybrid constructions between gender, past and future, man and animal and man and design. The body as a chair.

Storytelling was another potent correlation between several designers.
