Cape Town World Design Capital 2014

Cape Town is the World Design Capital 2014 and the Cape Town Green Map is proud to be placing green issues at the forefront of ways to design a more sustainable future.  

The impact of projects and products with a ‘Green by Design’ focus can indeed transform life – a key feature of World Design Captial 2014 (WDC 2014).

The Green by Design Map features the City of Cape Town's official WDC 2014 projects that reflect this ethos where environmental, social and cultural impacts inform design and aim to transform livelihoods and improve local commnities.

The Green by Design Icon was designed by Design Infestation, who has designed all four editions of the printed Cape Town Green Map.

The Green Map icons are divided into three catagories:  Culture & Society, Sustainable Living and Nature.  The new Green by Design Icon falls into the Culture & Society catagory.
