What A Time To Be Alive - #WATTBA
Studio of Things

#WATTBA presents six makers that use their design as a magnifying glass to tell unheard stories. While reflecting on the world as it is, they speculate on a different tomorrow. How can design contribute towards understanding, visualizing and constructing scenarios for a better future?
