about Un-Making Things

Un-Making Things is a microsite run by students of the MA History of Design programme, which is jointly run by the Royal College of Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Established in 2011 under the full name of Un-Making Things: a Design History Studio, it was conceived as ‘an online studio within which students of the programme could practice their craft’.

Un-Making Things has been a legacy of the V&A/RCA History of Design programme. During the last few years, it has evolved to include multidisciplinary perspectives to the discourse surrounding design history and practice. The 2019 squad is looking to use this space to write / talk / think more openly and less formally about all aspects of Design History while retaining the level of critical thinking and rigour expected of our academic context.
