MADWORKSHOP announces an open call for two design fellowships for 2017 addressing the theme of Emergency Architecture. In an era of increased environmental and political uncertainty, our responses as designers become ever more important. The foundation is currently soliciting proposals for innovative and life-saving design solutions in the areas of product and fashion design.
Proposals must tackle one of two topics: how to reimagine the emergency kit (earthquake / fire / flood / civil unrest) or how to develop a high performance garment for extreme weather or disaster situations. Each fellow will receive a grant of $5,000 to prototype their idea with the support of the foundation and its board of directors.
