Industry x Academia Capstone Project

The Brief

Cultures are not designed top down, but are organically grown from bottom up. In an increasingly connected, networked and mutually dependant world, we often lack a common purpose; thereby impacted by the actions and decisions of society as a whole.

Caught between the centripetal and centrifugal forces of post modernity; the global society is beginning to see staggering and unprecedented consequences of their decisions on an over populated planet. From the need to survive to the quest to thrive, it is time we see things as a whole, acknowledge our interdependence and regard our actions together with their likely consequences.

It is against this background that a common intention to develop a "Design for Circularity” is committed upon by two students from our academia partner - Indian School of Design and Innovation (ISDI) and industry partner - L.A.B in collaboration with JSW Realty under the "Sustainable Futures Program 2020" initiative.
