Hybrid Futures Lab
The Hybrid Futures Lab is a transdisciplinary research initiative at the intersection of philosophy, technology and design based at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. Informed by an ethos of transversality, it is a space for thinkers, practitioners, designers, artists, and technologists to experiment with, give tangible form to, and contest potential futures through speculative-pragmatic interventions and research. The Hybrid Futures Lab’s aim is to investigate the impact of digital technologies on the human and the nonhuman and how ways of existing are transformed by machines.
STADHI (Science & Technology + Art & Design Hybrid Innovation) is a transdisciplinary research collaboration based at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, established with Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. Our trans- and post-disciplinary work focuses on the testing, development and analysis of transversal frameworks, hybrid methodologies and hacking practices to ignite new fields of inquiry across science, engineering, technology, art and design.
Digital Innovation Season
A season of public talks, events and student-facing workshops focusing on current discourses, debates and practices that reflect on, interrogate and contest techno-digital futures. Now at its third edition, hosted by Central Saint Martins, the next Digital Innovation Season#3 – Planetary Sensing will take place in February 2024.
International Design PhD Summer School Politecnico Milano
A thematic doctoral school with emphasis on criticality and collaboration to sustain students in their design research. Based on a studio format and offering lectures and workshops, the school brings together doctoral students from world-wide design institutions to engage with an unscripted assemblage of epistemological, experimental and cognitive models, and to critically interrogate matters of concern pertaining design today.
FUEL4Design: Future Education and Literacy for Designers (2019-2023 - completed) is an Erasmus+ partnership jointly delivered by a consortium of European design institutions (University of the Arts London, Oslo School of Architecture and Design, Politecnico Milano, Elisava Barcelona). Focused on developing tools and frameworks today for the designers of tomorrow, it produced future-facing curriculum innovation for 21st century design pedagogy.
