Co-operating, Organising, Designing is a publication that is part of a year long research project exploring the effects of co-operative structures on design studios.
How could a co-operative framework inform a utopian design studio structure? To build these alternative design studio structures, this project proposes that studios be designed under a co-operative framework where each member has input and control over the structure that they work under. Under a co-operative framework, studio structures are in a constant state of plasticity, changing with time as they aim for a utopia that is a mirage on the horizon. This project follows the experimentation of a single studio operating and creating methods through the methodology of participatory design, Amici Studio.
