Who are we

We are a research and design collective with innovative and strategic design thinking at its core.

Our practice emerged from an architectural masters project that responded to social, economic, political and environmental changes within the northern region.

Since then we have worked collaboratively with communities, governments and institutions at a local, national and international level - focusing on making long-lasting and meaningful interventions that help people describe, understand and develop the spaces and communities they experience every day.

What we are currently working on

We are currently working with 100 art students to create a unique exhibition which ties together traditional print making with cutting edge technologies; quite literally walking in the footsteps of dinosaurs, and providing the interpretation for it and 12 other sites throughout Staffin (Skye) for their ecomuseum, Druim nan Linntean; working alongside our friends at Soluis and Lucidity Media to curate the exhibition Past Forward, Stories of Urban Scotland; and working alongside Anchorage Museum (Alaska) to imagine, design and propose a Future Arctic Anchorage.
