Designing for Crisis
CRISIS design  addresses how to innovate in/for situations of upheaval and for communities in need of new infrastructures for everyday life. It showcases environmental and sustainable projects for unpredictable changes in climates, and/or dealing with migration and mobility as an effect of globalization and political unrest.

Permacrisis and Design of Crisis
How do we plan for a future that is uncertain? How do we implement innovative design for temporary and dynamic (infra)structures? A model of “permacrisis” – takes cues from “permaculture” (sustainable agricultural ecosystems), and uses the ironic-hyperbolic prefix “perma-“, meaning “state of exception”. In this configuration, rather than proposing a remedy to crisis-mode, we propose to work with crisis.
