The Center for Other Worlds (COW) is an interdisciplinary research lab for design and art, based at Lusófona University. It focuses on the development of perspectives that are not dominant nor imposed by the design discipline through collaboration with various disciplines such as curating, architecture, visual arts, ecology, having in design an unifying element but rejecting hierarchies between them. The lab’s name makes a reference to the concept of otherness, thereby aiming at challenging universal visions of design and art.
