Explore innovation

With design and creativity at their core, our Studio Projects help organisations to re-ignite their innovation potential, challenge conventional assumptions and identify business growth opportunities. These research-led knowledge exchange projects deliver creative solutions through a unique workshop-based approach that brings together business partners, academics and students to explore long-term horizons and develop speculative design concepts.

Studio Projects are delivered with students from a wide range of degree programmes across the RCA, usually lasting a term. Recent projects include a collaboration with CERN exploring how science technology and design can propose solutions to international sustainability challenges; a project on the future of work as a result of AI disruption with Microsoft; and architecture design projects in partnership with British Land.
