Open Calls

Design Residency

This is the fourth residency that British Council, HIAP and Helsinki Design Week have collaborated on, following on from the first residency during the World Design Capital programme in 2012 and consequently in 2013 and 2014. This residency is for UK-based practitioners, who work at the intersections of art, design and architecture, and who have an interest in critical investigations and interventions into what constitutes design innovation.

This year’s residency will take place between 3 August to 30 September and will focus on the evocative idea of the Time Machine, as a platform to explore how design can predict and shape the urban context of future cities. This is a fresh opportunity to research, understand and challenge the relationships between design practices, urban space, through re-imagining materials, production processes, services and crafts.

The closing date for submissions is Sunday 14 June 2015.
