I believe that focusing on socially engaged grass roots projects is the key to unlocking the system change needed for a more sustainable way of living.

Above all I care about ensuring that design is a fun and enjoyable part of life.

Designer. Maker. Researcher – Milo Mcloughlin–Greening

We’re pleased to announce our current collaboration, and third instalment of Common Ground 2018 with Royal College of Art MA graduate designer, Milo Mcloughlin–Greening. Throughout October, Milo has collected hundreds of pieces of scrap wood from people living in Milton Keynes, tagging each piece of donated wood with its owners house number so that its origin will be visible. 

Throughout November Milo will collaborate with our communities to help design and build an object, using the scrap materials donated by the community, to build a new object with the community, for the community.  

This might take shape as a community dinner table, seating area or other focal point, to be enjoyed by everyone. 

Collecting Commons is the development of a project designed by Milo, exploring how a physical object can be used as a tool to develop social bonds within a community.
