I’m just back from another intellectually enriching visit to Helsinki for a Sitra strategic design event. HDL Global 2010 followed the Helsinki Design Lab studio I was part of earlier in the year, and combined notes on all this to follow. For now, the HDL site provides a great record of events.
The video was taken on Suomenlinna (Wikipedia) the sea fortress guarding the harbour in Helsinki, which turned out to be a wonderfully contemplative place to sit and read the briefing notes for the Sustainability session I was moderating at the event.
(I must also admit to another sly bit of 'method designing' here too, as Suomenlinna was the venue for the first Helsinki Design Lab in 1968, which featured Buckminster Fuller, Victor Papanek, Christopher Alexander et al.)
