Presented by the Dutch Design Center, ‘Landscapes of the Future' explores the social role of design and the importance of 'Schoonheid' (a Dutch word meaning both beauty and cleanliness).

Designer, artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde presents his innovative practice which merges people, technology and space to create a better world. The creator of smart highways, virtual floods and smog sucking towers, Roosegaarde examines and activates solutions to improve daily life in urban environments.

In this keynote, Roosegaarde explores the social role of design, the importance of 'Schoonheid', along with his vision for the future. As the ‘hippie with a business plan' to quote the New York Times, Roosegaarde has been selected as a creative change maker by Forbes and Good 100, and is a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum.

Roosegaarde's immersive outdoor dream landscape, WATERLICHT, will premiere at the opening of Jameel Arts Center on 11, 15 and 16 November 2018. Further information can be found here.
