What's Going on?
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.
A fantastic face-paced and assiduous Biomimetic Design Workshop was hosted by Project Shea (Eco Labs) and SP Polytechnic from 8 -12 June 2020, with an interdisciplinary group of students from the School of Architecture and the Built Environment.
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.
“How can i contribute and be involved as a community member?”
This was the question we set out to answer in our second set of regional community engagement events in May. A vibrant community is one where the members feel valued and have an area to contribute meaningfully.
We kicked off our very first set of regional online community events in the month of April! Imagining our Future Cities was aimed at introducing Project Shea to the Southeast Asian community and building the foundational community of individuals with an interest in the space.
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.
The competition was held between October and December 2019, to prototype a modular scalable shelter of 20 sqm to inculcate a sharing approach that reduces built footprint and maximises resource efficiency. There were 30 participating teams with 6 award winning designs.
