Experiential Futures Workshop at the Royal College of Art

Staging a futures workshop at a fictional RCA department of “Life Science Design”, this project was about collaboratively, with a group of designers, imagining a future toolkit with which designers might be able to easily and intuitively design synthetic plants, animals, and biological materials. The idea of a “default plant”, “default animal”, and “default material”, which designers could then shape, was explored in the workshop. Also, the role designers might play in shaping nature in the future, and the related ethical aspects, were discussed.
