The Workshop Workshop

is a multi-disciplinary collective of ten independent architects and designers, who either individually or in collaboration with each other develop tailor-made and ready-made design research workshops.

Additionally, The Workshop Workshop can assemble a specialist team from within the collective, who take on larger design research commissions that stretch over a longer period of time.

Design Research

It almost sounds like a cliché, if it were not so alarming, but new digital and bio technologies are quickly changing our world.

Furthermore humankind, at the same time has to face numerous ecological and societal challenges from the global to the local scale.

These challenges need an unconventional approach, as business-as-usual is no longer sufficient. Our design research approach, a creative form of inquiry, develops a different understanding of the world by reframing and sharpening the original question, issue or need at hand and at the same time proposing alternatives that challenge existing conditions.

The Workshop Workshop doesn’t provide products or services, instead we create processes for renewal.
