WHAT WE DO

We research, design and we connect. are developing a systemic approach that combines design methods with medical science and user’s experiences to create interactive and therapeutic spaces in cities. We are developing design tools that integrate medical sciences and the diversity of users's experiences to create healthier living environments.
