About the Exhibition

How do we envision our life to be if we live to 100 years old and beyond?

How can design contribute to the increasingly complex challenges confronting our society today and in the future?

Beyond 100: Transforming Design & Imagining Futures with Lab4Living, invites visitors to consider the civic responsibility, inquisitive, provocative, and technical qualities of design in response to society’s evolving circumstances and needs.

Lab4Living’s approach to design research is exemplified through this showcase. Using the exhibition as an extension to our ‘Living Lab’ we expand our inquiries to explore, provoke, and challenge notions of design, health, and civic engagement.

The key themes in this exhibition present the eclectic approaches, formats and directions undertaken by Lab4Living. The artefacts highlight the extraordinary potential of design and design research in transforming our way of life to foster positive and lasting change in the contexts of health and wellbeing, enabling life, and supporting human flourishing.
