With the theme of “The Value of Design Change”, GDC2019 focuses on the relations between design and commercial development, life style, social ecology, cultural expression, communication methods, and looks into the concrete results that generated by design, to name a few, the commercial development with better quality and vitality, the continuous and sustainable respect to the nature, the community integration via affinity and symbiosis, the development of local culture and the communication with more emotional experience.

We propose three questions:

1. What is the original intention of design intervention?

2 What changes are brought by design intervention?

3.Does the design bring more positive and effective results to the original intention and goal?

The jury panel will review and evaluate the energy and value of each piece of design work based on the above three questions.
