Emerging in the field of bio-design and regenerative architecture, this panel has been curated to explore transitions towards a circular economy. The diverse panel comprises of Melbourne based trans-disciplinary bio-designers including urbanists, architects, artists, academic researchers and educators.

Combined, the panel projects will demonstrate the depth and breadth across scale and time that bio-design is integrated within. As compelling storytellers, each panel member offers their unique insights navigating climate change, waste and emission management within their industry. This includes large scale city proposals to microscopic detail of living microbial textiles.

From speculative space futures to ancient place based technologies, some panellists advocate Indigenous knowledge systems to address future bio-climatic challenges. This event has been curated by Design Think Lab.

This event is presented in collaboration with Melbourne Design Week.

This event is made possible by the Hugh D T Williamson Foundation through funding for MPavilion’s Design & Science series of events.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
