About WDC2014

World Design Capital is not a conventional design competition. It is about design in its broadest sense, and about designing better cities for people. Discover all there is to know about World Design Capital, our story, goals, past capital cities and more.


The World Design Partner® Programme is an initiative established by Icsid to support the needs of its international programmes such as the World Design Capital.


From our ‘pop up’ office on Harrington Street in the Fringe District in Cape Town, to the invaluable administrative support, encouragement and backing, World Design Capital Cape Town 2014 would not have been possible without the support of these partners and sponsors.
