There's a new buzz in Cologne, a city known for its celebrations and major events.
From June 20 to 24, 2007, Rheindesign will turn the entire city into one huge open-air
festival. A vibrant mixture of design and architecture, art and culture. Whether it's a
concert of washing machines in the central city plaza, a fashion show in an aerial
tramway, a design discussion on a train or a hotel room designed for the year 2020,
Cologne is partying, pulsating, and thinking about the future – for an entire week in the
middle of summer. More than forty events will take place during the midsummer days
and nights. Design, forums on the future and art will be the focus of the city's activities
– and its meals. With art cakes a metre-long, designer barbecues, "design and dine"
parties until the wee hours of the morning.
