Guide to Running Popup Studios

$4.99

SDR Traveller is born out of Studio D Radiodurans, our sister design and strategy consultancy based out of San Francisco. The studio philosophy is the same as our luggage, the absolute minimum infrastructure in place to do interesting work, and not an jot more.

The Guide to Popup Studios, published by Field Institute, condenses over a decade's worth of experience of international field research in very difficult locales. It explores the art and science of repurposing spaces for creative output.

Background

Over the past decade the Studio D team has gained extensive experience at running international projects for organisations with a global remit. They’ve built a comprehensive understanding what it takes to create an optimal space for gathering data, drawing insight, and applying the knowledge to guide strategy, and the design of new products and services.

A single project can generate tens of thousands of photos and other rich, attributable data points, each of which can reveal patterns, weak signals for what lies ahead. The D3 and the products on this site were engineered to cope with the relentless demands of field study travel.

A pop-up studio is a live/work space that is optimised for teams working to a shared goal. It is highly suited to international research, design and innovation projects that require rapid immersion into new locales, and considerable iteration on ideas and designs.

 

The approach is particularly affective at bridging interpersonal and cultural divides on multi-national teams from very different backgrounds, building trust locally, and is affective at elevating the creativity and productivity of individuals and the team.

This guide explains how to run a popup studio, when and why it is appropriate, the trade-offs that need to be understood, with plenty of examples from around the globe.
