The lab develops studio-based projects, workshops and seminars in collaboration with industry partners and cultural institutions to foster the anthropological imagination of the designers. The material cultures and the histories of the « Others », those usually associated with peripheral locations, narratives and agencies, are explored to let the students experience a decentered position and find innovative local responses to the global. The activities of the lab aim at questioning and displacing the existing cultural boundaries through the investigation of new transnational and translational design practices.
