The 2020 Shenzhen Design Week has been relaunched amid the scorching summer to further promote Shenzhen as a City of Design.

Different from previous years, key activities of this year’s design week were held online. The design week this year goes under the theme of “Virtual Design, Infinite Creativity.” In addition to 10 key activities including the “Shenzhen Design for 40 Years” exhibition, a Da Vinci themed exhibition, and a Greater Bay Area design exhibition, this Design Week featured over 40 activities both online and offline, breaking through the boundaries of time and space. Through digital technologies such as 3D modeling, programming and user interface, visitors to the exhibitions can interact online, access and share wonderful designs anywhere anytime.

Meanwhile, exhibitions at subvenues of the design week are also highly popular among design enthusiasts. In the 1,700-year-old Nantou Ancient Town, visitors can enjoy exhibitions with themes such as environmental protection, and the integration of traditional crafts with modern design. According to Zhang Linling, a curator of the “Crafting the Future: New Value of Tradition” exhibition, the exhibits on display have shown how traditional crafts can gain a new life through modern design, and the exhibition gives us a glimpse of how traditions can live with the future.
