Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Willem de Kooning Academy invite you to attend How Do You Do Biodesign, an evening for architects, urban designers, product designers, biologists, fashion designers, artists and digital makers and others who are curious what exactly biodesign can mean for the field of work and research. Have you ever wondered what biodesign could mean for your immediate surroundings? Are you curious to find out what biohacking is? Or do you want to learn how to design with living material? In short, do you want to know how to put biodesign into practice? How Do You Do is a format for exchanging and sharing ideas, expertise and experience. Don’t expect any fancy PowerPoint presentations. Instead, you’ll hear honest stories about the making of, with lots of information about what works and what doesn’t.
