Design Fiction


Derek Hales Architect established a para-academic R&D programme in 2015 to initiate and support research and development by creating encounters between philosophy, science and the methodologies of artistic research, speculative design and theory-fiction.

Derek is an ARB registered and RIBA chartered Architect with over 20 years of post-professional experience in academic management of R&D and cultural production in media art. He has given lectures seminars and workshops on his research internationally and works in transdisciplinary contexts of design-led R&D and innovation.
