Architect and designer Bahar Al Bahar joins Salim Ahmed and Lisa Ball-Lechgar from Tashkeel to talk about the importance of cross-disciplinary collaboration within the realm of design and fabrication. Recognised as one of the major values of the Bauhaus Movement, Bahar looks into the notion of collective practice within the contemporary technology landscape and examines the challenges and opportunities of when practitioners of design, craft, product engineering and manufacturing come together to build. Ultimately, their shared endeavour can optimise all resources and yield richer and more significant results than the sum of individual efforts. Bahar will speak about his own experience of and contribution to collaborative projects in fields from art to aerospace and speculate on the future of collective design and fabrication.
