INDUSTRIAL DESIGN 2

Everything that surrounds us has been designed, 
even what we consider to be ‘natural’ is heavily shaped by human influences. The consequences of industrial production have become clearer and as designers sitting at the heart of these systems, how do we design responsibly in an age of radical technological change, unpredictability, conflicting opinions and multiple methods, within a world at the limits of its resources?

PROJECT: ILLEGAL _The overhead electric transport system in Vienna is never switched off, even after trams stop for the day. . .
. . . a one wheeled vehicle 'borrows' energy from the overlooked latent resource above our heads.. . .
. . . What might have been illegal is taken from its fearlessly innovative roots and re-imagined as a transport alternative.

This blog  documents processes, workshops and events capturing how design ideas evolve  over time, using iterative processes and multiple perspectives:
