The first section, ‘Post City,’ deals with the present and future of urban spaces designed to withstand disasters. The modern urban crisis has been exacerbated both by increasing inequality and by social, ecological, and political instability. The appearance of the pandemic in early 2020 clearly delineated the vulnerabilities of urban spaces to social distresses.

The concept of “ghost work” best captures the human condition of working under the shadow of digital technology. How are we being designed when our reorganization by technology goes deeper than society, industry, or city, to extend its grip to the individual? With this question in mind, this section explores alternative ways to restore the lost relationship between technology, labor, and the human.

The third section deals with the notion of the ‘hyperobject’ and the challenge it presents to our conventional thinking in its breaking down of the boundaries between human and non-human, civilization and nature, politics and ecology. In a world of hyperobjects, one overflowing with the indigestible stuff resulting from human-centered design, what other perspectives do we need? In this part, we present design-driven thinking and practice that transforms the networks of relationships between humans, non-humans, and the world, speaking to the permeation of material reality by the hyperobject.

The last part of the exhibition, “2050,” guides the audience to a future near in time but distant from our imaginations. In science fiction novels, movies, and imaginary architecture, the predominant mode in which the future has been depicted has been one of dystopia, not utopia. But these catastrophic prophecies animate the perspectives and practices of those who have designed the future; they demonstrate the need for change, calling for a concrete reconfiguration of a future unwritten.
