Metadesign is an emerging conceptual framework for co-creating a new social, economic and technical infrastructure. It exists as a superset of aims, values and tools that would enable teams of trans-disciplinary designers to map, co-create, and orchestrate a new paradigm of wellbeing.

This Metadesign Research Centre will be known as 'MRC Wales'. The launch was kindly supported by the ATiC project.
