Circular Futures- Next Gen
Circular Futures: Next Gen

Circular Futures: Next Gen

The work shown in this exhibition pushes the boundaries of sustainable design and addresses how we can better approach environmental concerns. It provides potential solutions for the damage caused by human impact on this Earth and projects new possibilities for living in the future.


The exhibition explores how sustainable design can be beautiful and proves that embracing environmental constraints does not prevent designers and architects from generating novel ideas. The exhibition will demonstrate how Digital Design and Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) is a powerful enabler of a Circular Economy. It will feature a series of unique, sustainably built 3D printed Artworks by the Architecture Intelligence Research Lab (AIRLAB) led by Professor Carlos Banon.


In addition, the exhibition will display speculative designs from graduate and researchers @formAxioms lab, SUTD. These will propose novel infrastructures and solutions to climate change, specifically to rising sea levels. In doing so, the students will address Singapore’s future; they test design strategies in a diversity of oceans to produce an Atlas of possible future actions in Singapore. These will be presented as VR experiences.
