about us

playground is a space, and an ecosystem, designed exclusively for creative collaborative work at Habib University. It serves as a gateway to making and design activities across departments and schools. Through workshops, pop-up classes and industry and community projects students will be able to learn, and apply their learning, across disciplines and media – from sewing to 3D printing, photography to film, board games to phone apps, wood work to metal work, and beyond.

The playground is bringing together a community of collaborators and experts across disciplines, to investigate how we should inhabit the world in the face of the climate crisis. It is through dreaming, mapping, making, experimenting and taking action, that we can start collectively Designing Planetary Futures

Design needs to be slower and more deliberate. We can no longer be exploitative, extractive and wasteful. We need to imagine new ways of living, consuming and distributing in order to build regenerative futures. Indigenous ecological knowledge, geoengineering and circular economies are some of the models and methods we need to explore and understand.

Human activities have changed the Earth System to the point where we are in a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene. Climate change, biodiversity loss, waste and pollution are among the biggest challenges we will face in our lifetime. This is estimated to cost Pakistan $3.8 billion yearly in economic loss.

For decades now, we have been using design as a problem-solving tool that focuses solely on the human experience. We need to go beyond human-centered design and design for the wellbeing of our planet as a whole. We must see everything as part of a huge, interconnected system and understand the consequences that our design decisions have on the environment. This requires a different kind of thinking.
