At Made in Space, Indy will talk about “The Dark Matter of Open Making” and share his early learnings and reflections based on designing institutional infrastructures for a distributed and collaborative future — “from infrastructure for open manufacturing, to townhalls for social innovation”.
Indy Johar is an architect, author and Senior Innovation Associate with The Young Foundation. He is also the Graham Willis Visiting Professor of Architecture at the University of Sheffield, and the co-founder of 00 — a “collaborative studio of architects, strategic designers, programmers, social scientists, economists and urban designers practicing design beyond its traditional borders”.
Indy is also the founder and CEO of Dark Matter Laboratories, whose goal is “to apply complex systems science to value chain innovation, management and relationships”. His work is increasingly focused on co-designing the institutional infrastructure of good growth in its numerous facets, including developing new models of urban regeneration and education.
