Event Description

Multidisciplinary collaborations and design thinking are two methods that can help develop innovative ideas, especially when it comes to responding to complex topics such as sustainability. Two projects, Dust to Dust and Probes, developed as collaborations between DLX Design Lab and Sakai Lab and Yagi Lab respectively will be presented to exemplify this approach. These two projects were carried out as part of a series of UTokyo collaborations supported by Toyoshima, centred around the topic of sustainability.
