On the 15th of February 2014 it was the 3rd World Information Architecture Day. The 2014 World IA Day will took place in 24 cities in 15 countries. The Belgian WIAD was in Antwerp. The program consisted of a combination of keynotes, a hackaton and case & technique-presentations.

Social Spaces gave a presentation on Social Design, focussing on participatory design, the search for a correct balance between aesthetic, functional & social design and the role of friction. The final slides of the presentation tell the story of the DementiaLab, a project focussing on creating and sharing low tech tools to make the life of the person with dementia and their environment more pleasant.
