Design in the Middle is an ongoing project, where designers, architects and social activists from around the Middle East and European mediterranean countries gather in extra-territorial locations, generating alternative near-future scripts and design proposals to address challenges relevant to the Middle East.
The objective of the workshops is to restore the conditions that allow civil imagination to thrive by creating a framework in which one can imagine diverse and yet-to-come forms of governance, coexistence, ownership, and alliances.
We had the pleasure to witness and film the collaborative creative processes taking place throughout the workshop held at the MAXXI in Rome in Spring 2017.
