Eclectic Curiosity

The Institute without Boundaries, a joint project of Bruce Mau Design and George Brown College, was recently launched in Toronto. It’s purpose is “to engage design as a critical stance, the need exists for a new model. Design must distance itself from narrow specialization as imposed by the 20th century Fordist model of production. The new paradigm abandons expertise in the division of labour, and promises to end boundaries, borders, and artificial limits”. For C$12,000+ and 12 months graduate students will study inside BMD’s studio and will work primarily on a project called “Massive Change”, which will culminate in a traveling exhibition commissioned by the Vancouver Art Gallery, a book published by Phaidon Press, a 13-part television series, web-based projects, public events, and products.
