Non-Pavilion aims to put the topic of economics and its relationship to the environmental and social crisis on the agenda at London Design Festival 2019. Its symbolic presence and six superimposed Augmented Reality commissions serve to question the value of our growth-driven economic system, highlight its detrimental impact on the planet and human wellbeing and point towards alternatives such as degrowth and restorative balance. It is an invitation to question the systems within which we are made to operate using the medium of design, in order to gain more agency over them.
A curated programme of talks and activities focusing on the power of design to address the key issues of our age, whilst also inspiring the design community will be held during Exhibition Road Day of Design, 22 September 2019.
In collaboration with Studio MiCat and Proud Studio.
Commissioned by Victoria & Albert Museum for London Design, Festival, 14-22 September 2019non-pavilion.org / V&A
