FLDWRK uses applied research and strategic design methodologies to undertake real-world challenges, allowing us to investigate forward-looking solutions by using speculative storytelling. Our approach is rooted in critical thinking based on a collaborative process.
FLDWRK is currently working within five research lenses in over a dozen collaborations with universities, foundations, communities, commercial and institutional organizations, journals, and forums for the projection of a positive future.
We work at the intersection of research and practice. We see projects as laboratories, as places for exploring, experimenting, prototyping, and testing hypotheses that respond to evolving and changing contexts. The practice is the project.
