Design Feeds is a collaborative workshop exploring how designers can intervene and craft urban space. Intervening at an urban scale calls for designers to move beyond specialist boundaries and take a trans-disciplinary approach by questioning how we can create living environments that synthesise both living matter and technological tools through the convergence of biology, ecology, architecture and design.

The process lasted 10 days and has covered a wide range of activities including walking tours by local experts, mapping using mobile technologies, bamboo building techniques, parametric design tools and storytelling.
