Design Lab with Andreas : Scenario and Speculation

I shared my project, Design Practices and speculative design briefs with Andreas. I also shared my crazy idea about the “archaeology” exhibition from year 3000 that curates certain artefacts or designs that tell a narrative of what happened in Singapore 2100.

These objects will tell a narrative of how the natural resource scarcity scenario made people look for ways to find food like foraging, urban agriculture. The narrative will be open ended as to whether they survived or not, and this is meant to make people question themselves and create discourse on the value of nature and our dependency.

  1. A survival guide or map
  2. A fantasy storybook
  3. Urban agriculture
