Week 5 – Making Impact

Every year, Fab Lab Barcelona at The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia organises an academy as a form of knowledge exchange. The topics are based around a series of projects that are carried out by Distributed Design Platform members in line with distributed design principles.

This year the academy is divided into five online modules with a module each week. The academy is made up of private exclusive training for the academy students, plus free and open to the public talks by experts in their field. This is one of those free talks. 

Week 5 module, Form, Impact, Context: The Design to Improve Life Pillars, will have Mariano Alesandro, Head of Future Thinking & Technology at The Index Project, giving an overview of the three pillars of design to improve life. We’ll discuss these concepts and see some of the best design to improve life examples coming from the Index Award. Form isn’t enough when designing solutions to global challenges, impact and context are equally important, and perhaps even more.
