Design Futuring Research



Contemporary concerns to be sustainable lie in finding a means to ensure a bio-diverse future for the planet, its species & ourselves.

ARCA : Design Futuring Research aims to imagine how we might overcome some of the tensions and contradictions which plague such an ambition. We ask what role the humanities, art & design may play in (re)imagining such futures through critical posthumanist dialogues. We are a transdisciplinary doctoral & postdoctoral research community exploring the interrelations between the technological, material, cognitive, non-human & ecological temporalities that may inform our understanding of the past, present & future. Our wider research community extends across Cardiff Metropolitan University, Bristol University, University of Buckingham, Oxford University, Plymouth University and also Tomas Bata University, Zlin.
