About this Incubator Project | V-Lab
The C3LD Incubator Project “Transdisciplinary Design” is exploring a provocative and compelling idea: Either design is about to be widely transformed and /Or a new design discipline is emerging from the sustainable design movement. Either way, the design world is changing. This C3LD Incubator project is exploring this trend and you’re invited to join us in the exploration.

What is Transdisciplinary?
“Transdisciplinarity”can be used to signify a unity of knowledge beyond disciplines. In the International Center for Transdisciplinary approach, transdisciplinarity is radically distinct from interdisciplinarity. Interdisciplinarity, like pluridisciplinarity, concerns the transfer of methods from one discipline to another. As the prefix “trans” indicates, transdisciplinarity concerns that which is at once between the disciplines, across the different disciplines, and beyond each individual discipline. Its goal is the understanding of the present world, of which one of the imperatives is the overarching unity of knowledge.’ Adapted from Wikipedia. See “Wider Useage”
