Deep Design – The principles and demonstration of an ecosystem-centered design approach.

‘Deep Design’ is a new approach developed to match the current new era, including the Anthropocene realization. It opposes the ‘human-centered design’ that ruled the design scene for almost 50 years, and includes principles and values from the metaphor of deep diving. In the talk Ezra Tarazi will demonstrate its philosophy introducing a 5 years project printing coral reefs ecosystems and refuge in 3D, installed in Katzaa – Red Sea, Maghooloo – Maldives, Cartagena – Colombia and Okinawa – Japan.
