Future Prototyping
by LLDS, United Make and University of Melbourne

James Rafferty

The Future Prototyping exhibition aims to inspect, question and showcase how the power of making is highly relevant in the twenty-first century.

The exhibition collates 36 international projects from multiple disciplines – architecture, engineering, food, product design, fashion and perfumer – all displayed through various mediums.

The exhibition design itself is based on a flexible travelling super-grid structure that carves away spaces to exhibit design content in any context.

To avoid the wasteful practice of exhibition design where materials are discarded, the super-grid design enables the parts to be demounted and re-used for future deployment in fragments or as a whole.

This project has been longlisted in the exhibition design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.

Designer: LLDS, United Make, University of Melbourne
