mad.lab is in its 5th year of cooperation with partners Priestman Architects and Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, and in 2019 will be based in the Jiulongpo area of Chongqing. Using the theme “Conduit” mad.lab 5 responds to a range of rich provocations related to China’s rapidly emerging service and consumer economy, and the accompanying priority of rural poverty alleviation programs. The studio offers students the opportunity to research, conceptualise and prototype around the question “How can design create meaningful connections between rural and urban contexts to contribute to generating prosperous sustained futures?”
15 New Colombo Plan Mobility Grants of $2000 for mad.lab 5 are open to undergraduate UNSW Art & Design and Built Environment students who have available electives and are Australian citizens.

Deadline for applications: 5pm on Friday August 30
