Curious About Slow Lloyd

Looking back: SLOW LLOYD



Slow Lloyd was a design research project in the Eastern Docklands area of Amsterdam, exploring the Slow creative potentials of the historic Lloyd Hotel and the locality surrounding it.

Over the course of two years, slowLab collaborated with hundreds of designers, architects, urban planners, artists, environmental technologists, social innovators, and local community members, all of whom applied our Slow design principles to research and redraw the material, spatial, social, sensory, and temporal expressions of this local system.

The program was officially closed in June 2012, but the effects stand to last for many years to come. You can learn and see a lot more via the online program archive HERE >

Have you seen slowLab's organizational page on Facebook? We irregularly post Slow design knowledge highlights there, and we're also using that space to encourage critical thinking and dialogue about the roles and responsibilities of social media today. Take a look here>>
