Projects in Transnational Design

Design projets are exceedingly collaborative and more often than not, take place in different places at once by people with radically varied backgrounds.


Screen-based tools at a casual level seem “easy”, but creating a successful collaboration over great cultural and physical distance is difficult, requiring large amounts of planning and experimentation.


Projects in Transnational Design is a five-year collaboration between the Master’s programs at Pratt Institute in New York City and AKV St. Joost in the Netherlands.


Directed by Tom Klinkowstein and Miriam Bestebreurte, Projects in Transnational Design creates a networked, shared ethos by using the principles (among others) of Martin Buber’s, “Ich und Du” (I and Thou), to produce speculative design investigations.


"What-if" scenarios and demographic profiles of future clients, especially as pertains to financial resources and transactions in the 2020's.
