EXCX is a design collective based in Melbourne/Naarm Australia.
by adding ‘extra’ context to a site beyond the physical and regulatory definitions
of its boundaries and a linear idea of history.
strategies include unearthing lesser known narratives of place (cultural,
ecological and technological), playing with the levers and aesthetics of development
to do less with more, and drawing counterfactual timelines and fictional artefacts to
suggest new identities and possible realities.
aim is to create complex, direct and delightful places that invite and
challenge people to make new collective and future-oriented stories in urban
EXCX members are Paul van Herk, Shereen Amin, Matthew Tibballs and Lauren Garner.
