The TEN sustainable design strategies workshop – Adhocism project

Ted Ten Adhocism project

TED researchers worked with all stage 2 BA Textile Design students at Chelsea for a The TEN strategies workshop in March. The team lead a brainstorming session for the Adhocism project where the students evaluated their practice through the lens of one selected sustainable design strategy.

Each group was lead by an expert that facilitated the discussion around a set of The TEN strategies:

  1. Kate Goldsworthy: TT1&2
  2. Kay Politowicz: TT1&2
  3. Helen Paine: TT3&4&5
  4. Philippa Wagner: TT6
  5. Josefin Landalv: TT8
  6. Miriam Ribul: TT6&9&10
  7. Bridget Harvey: TT6&9&10

The results of the workshop highlighted how the students recognise a layered approach to their designs, demonstrating how they already apply multiple strategies for sustainability when designing. The groups also presented the opportunities that emerge through sharing and collaborating.
