Project Shea wants to change the way future cities are designed and built so that it involves people, planet, and profit. In a unique collaboration of art and science, Project Shea will be organising an event on the 17th of July, from 5.00 – 7.00 pm. It will be a time of exploration, to understand what people in our community value the most, and how this has potentially changed in recent times.
On the last Friday of every month, the Audacity community gets together for open discussions on our seed projects. While the physical space at Launchpad@JID is closed temporarily, we’d like to continue these conversations online. Come join us for a chit chat and to find out more about our seed projects.
As a diverse community of innovators, visionaries and entrepreneurs, we have the privilege to make possible, bold visions for future cities. We have been working on the hypothesis that rising oceans and decaying urban infrastructure will result in the creation of hundreds of new cities in the coming decades.
The module “Project Shea – Next Generation Civilisation Kit” Modular Habits – A System for Nimble Living began in January, 2020. 18 product design students from the School of Art, Design and Media at NTU have enrolled and will be showcasing their innovative talent in designing a flexible flat-pack shelter.
