DW, A TEACHING
Martin Lorenz and Lupi Asensio from TwoPoints.Net teach since 2005. First only short workshops at different international design institutions, festivals and congresses. Later as regular teachers at five different design school in Barcelona and since 2009 they designed, organized and directed two different postgraduate and master degrees. The experiences they made, raised a question: How should design be learned nowadays? Design Werkstatt is our answer.
The Design Werkstatt is not a school. It is a place for designers that seek to improve their skills in a favorable learning environment. Design can’t be learned by studying, design has to be learned by doing. Design theory should lead to action and action to theory, but never theory to theory. The Design Werkstatt (“Design Workshop” in German) is a place where “students” work and “teachers” guide.
