Instead of designing a building, what if we redesigned the system?

Watch our film about disruptive design now

Our film, supported by Dyson, explores the nature of what positive disruption means – and what role architecture can play in that.

In the film:

  • Alastair Parvin, co-founder of the WikiHouse Foundation, an open source project for designing and building houses, discusses the economics behind the built environment and what needs to change.
  • Leyla Acaroglu, founder of The UnSchool & Disrupt Design, talks about the power of social impetus.
  • Paul Nicholls, creative director and co-founder of architectural visualisation expert Factory Fifteen, sheds light on how virtual reality will transform the way we design. 
  • Jake Dyson, director and chief lighting engineer at Dyson, highlights the importance of a ’form follows function’ approach, and the possibilities that emerge through thinking differently.

What does disruptive design mean to you?
