Biodesign for Social Impact Workshop

A participatory workshop, designed in collaboration with Eva Auer and Sean Greaves. To date, the workshop has been delivered at Dutch Design Week and TU Delft.


Synthetic biology offers a radical vision for design: people will begin designing, remixing and composing new organisms tailored to their needs and those of others. What living things will members of the public design? And for what purpose?


Biodesign for Social Impact investigates the potential for biotechnologies to alter the social and political landscape of our future. During the workshop, participants will construct speculative futures and design novel organisms inspired by the current news and the capability of biotechnologies.
