Living on an exhausted planet with limited resources urges us to radically rethink our personal and professional practice.

Dirty Work is an open organisation for interdisciplinary research and design, set out to build resilient communities, infrastructures and tools, while nourishing our more-than-human ecosystems and respecting the planet’s boundaries.

We develop projects in architecture, product design and alternative storytelling. We are non-profit and pro-collaboration.

Through conversations, workshops, publications, prototypes, experiments and fully executed architectural and design projects, we answer the questions of our time.

To live: how, where and why?
