MAKE GOOD: RETHINKING MATERIAL FUTURES

Make Good: Rethinking Material Futures is a V&A curatorial project that John supports.  It was launched in 2022 and will run for ten years.  It investigates the use of natural, renewable materials in design and architecture and invites practitioners from different fields to share research, knowledge and skills and considers the responsibilities of designers and consumers toward the natural world.  The project encompasses an annual symposium, an annual display and an ongoing acquisition initiative, capturing the program's research outputs in the museum collection.
