For many designs, Cynthia Hathaway researches various groups often operating on the edge of mainstream. The studio tracks individuals, groups and communities who live intentionally, or not, on the peripheries of mainstream thought, location and production. Survival techniques are often characterized as specific to the person(s) or groups involved and provide inspiring implications for others in and out of the mainstream. Beyond mere documentation, the highlighting of expertise, and the creation of platforms and cross collaboration between various groups provides alternative visions and methodologies that are applicable to innovative concepts for product, leisure and entertainment, and urban and community design.
This website shows an edited version of Hathaway Designs' core projects. The website will be updated frequently, and please see CV for an extensive list of all studio projects.
