New technologies for local resources

Workshop at ENSAD

During the workshop that took place at ENSAD on February 2016, together with 30 students, we explore the potential of “Transition Design” in the neighbourhood of Montreuil; a design that “focusses on the need for cosmopolitan localism, a lifestyle that is place-based and regional, yet global in it’s awareness and exchange of information and technologies.” In collaboration with the Écofablab of Montreuil, we designed solutions for the needs of the neighbourhood, researching local waste materials and economies; envisioning the Ecofablab, and digital technologies, as production means for our prototypes.

 

The workshop was part of the annual Cycle Façonner l’Avenir 2016 / Cycle Forging the Future.The topic of 2016 was: In Time and Place: Investigating the tangible variable of temporality within sustainable creative practices.
