One Question Interview with Joshua Kupsch
The chair of Media Architecture Design Edmonton (MADE) shares his thoughts on the thriving Edmonton design scene.
Why is the design scene in Edmonton thriving?
“Design is a way to respond to the city’s unique challenges—climate, or our recent economic boom—in a way that serves us as citizens. I think there’s a sense of collaboration among designers in Edmonton, but that’s true of other industries as well, like restaurants. Everyone’s supportive, rather than competitive, and that offers a great opportunity to be creative and make things.”
The MADE Street Furniture Competition runs during the Works Art and Design Festival, June 19 to July 1. theworks.ab.ca.
