"The aed is accepted and is still growing - events are regularly booked."
"The aed idea of displaying good design from Baden- Württemberg in different formats has worked out. I would like to highlight the series 'aed
Lives'. In this series great personalities from architecture and design talk about what has motivated and shaped them. For me this is always a very special evening once a year. Supplementing
this: aed neuland, a crossdisciplinary competition for upandcoming students, which has been very well accepted by the students and is only possible because of the generous support by the Karl
Bad Foundation and the engagement of a prominent jury."
