RESEARCH

As a result of our material-experimental design approach, we decided to develop our own tools and strategies to support our practice. We put together a multidisciplinary team, including chemists, environmental scientists and analysts who can help designers turn cities into a living web of connected material processes and flows.
We developed tools such as from the Superuse Relevance Indicator and Environmental Impact Calculator to help ground our design strategies in rigorous scientific practice. Another tool, the Harvest Map, offers a geographic representation to help identify and prioritise waste materials in the vicinity of a project site. We recently developed a tool for shortcutting regional and local material streams.
