Platform 18 is about process. We focus on material investigation and discovery. We question what things are made of, how they are made, and what virtues arise from the nature of production processes. We believe there is a need to look beyond established models of design manufacture and consumerism to explore new and alternative means for production and consumption.

Platform 18 expects students to be thinkers and makers; Meticulous, methodical, adventurous and fanatical individuals with a sensibility to both artistic and aesthetic values.
