Heritage is everywhere. Are we open to it? Are we able to recognize and if, do we feel invited to start an interaction? And finally, is there a link to contemporary conditions and situations? What could be the role of design, to identify and offer platforms, stages and touch points? Linking heritage to future opportunities in a physical, intellectual and most important in an emotional way. Let ́s use what exists to create what is to be.
