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 wetware, hardware, and software to visualise and address real world water problems.
Our current projects derived from our common and local focus on water.
