Future Method Studio is a collaborative and interdisciplinary practice working across research, activism, architecture, installation and speculative projects. The focus of the studio is on material culture and creative methodologies that are impact and process driven.
The studio has collaborated with Dutch design group FOUNDation Projects, Sydney based Make-Space for Architecture and Archival on projects for the Sydney Architecture Festival 2013 and the Venice Architecture Biennale 2012. More recent work includes design installations for Elke Kramer, the research and installation project WATERTOPIA with Alvaro Carrillo and Carmen Blanco for The Newlandscapes Institute, and a restaurant in London with Studio BOUM (London). Future and current collaborations include research commissioned by The New Landscapes Institute looking at the futures of the Travelling Stock Routes of NSW, creative development of installation work with artist Tamara Dean, Sydney Biennale and C3West commissions as well as architectural projects in Alice Springs, Sydney and India.
Its work has been nominated for the Conde Naste Design Innovation Award 2010 and shortlisted for the Designboom competition Design For Death 2013.
