OUR DESIGN THINKING

 

Designing a sustainable built environment involves strategic planning and infrastructure of the flow of resources and zero waste. What has struck us about nature's dealing with waste is not its zero-waste quality but its opportunistic quality. In LOOP STORIES, we treat every community in which we live, schools at which we study, places at which we work and homes as an ecosystem. We aim for searching, defining and guarding all the resources in the system in order to connect them within circular economy rather than a linear one.

 

 LOOP Stories' Design Thinking was inspired by Octopuses from the Cephalopods. This is a Creative Thinking Method, which tries to build infinite loops in the ever-expanding economy with open, decentralised,  adaptive, transparent and communicative design. An Octopus has three hearts, 9 brains, a curious mind, flexible body that can change its colour, shape ,texture and engulfs many other qualities that can be adapted to this fun and earth-loving innovation. We will be posting more detailed about this in our journal soon.
