"Design the Science - Science the Design"

Yu Uchikura (Project Researcher, DLX Design Lab, Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo)

Kentaro Honma (Associate Professor, Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo)

Over the past six years, DLX Design Lab at the University of Tokyo's Institute of Industrial Science has conducted more than 30 design projects in collaboration with research labs in various fields. In addition to the design projects, DLX Design Lab is also working on systematising the methodology - "Treasure Hunting" to enable designers and scientists, who work in different languages and with different methods, to work more tightly together. In this talk, I would like to introduce a couple of the latest projects together with our design approach and discuss what kind of values the collaboration between science and design can bring and will achieve in the future.

Yu Uchikura is a Japan-based designer/researcher. Yu had been educated in architecture design in Japan and the US. After having several internship experiences, he decided to expand his scope of design to a more holistic level. From 2019, he joined DLX Design Lab with a mission to turn science into a deployable innovation through the actionable design approach. As a project researcher at DLX Design Lab, Yu has been leading several DLX Treasure Hunting projects both in collaboration with IIS research labs and/or consortium companies.
