The Institute without Boundaries is an innovative, interdisciplinary postgraduate program offered at George Brown College in Toronto. This years theme, World House Project, tackles housing challenges and issues of universal access, sustainability, intelligent and green design. The core studio faculty includes developer and builder Rohan Walters, industrial designer Dianne Croteau and filmmaker Chris Lowry.
The Institute launched in 2003 and delves into methods and practices of design research, strategy and social innovation. The student team experience grows through the demands of the projects using an intellectually rigorous process of communication and creativity.
In collaboration with Bruce Mau, the first project undertaken by the Institute, Massive Change resulted in a 20,000-square-foot exhibition, book, radio show and lecture series. Information sessions for the Institute take place on March 14 and April 11.
The deadline for applications is April 28, 2006.
