Project: Connections

This project launches a five-year, multi-phase, experimental design studio that integrates living and working and exploring new models of design practice. Each year, the studio will move to a different location with changing geographic and material conditions, and the work produced will respond to these varying contexts. Projects will be disseminated through a publication series, website and exhibitions. The practice will operate under a different name and a different set of parameters each year. The name adopted each year also describes the type of work created. The years and studio names in order are: Connections, Encounters, Impressions, Recursions and Reflections.
