For the real world

BIO-DESIGN for the REAL WORLD explores how biology and biotechnology can be designed within social contexts.

As a powerful technological medium after industrial and digital revolutions, implementation and design solutions for biology and biotechnology must reflect a diversity of voices to be meaningful in society, not only to be guided by economic concerns of a few.

BIO-DESIGN for the REAL WORLD is a transdisciplinary and collaborative research project. We ask what is good design in biology and biotechnology by going through design cycles to define, build, and field-test prototypes that require the integration of wetwarehardware, and software to visualise and address real world water problems.

Our current projects derived from our common and local focus on water.
