Julia Watson

Online - ABP Zoom Webinar

  • MSD at HOME

Designer, activist, academic and author, Julia Watson is a leading expert on indigenous technologies, as seen in her monograph Lo-TEK, Design by Radical Indigenism, published by Taschen.

She teaches at Harvard and Columbia while also leading an experiential, landscape, and urban design practice: Julia Watson Studio. After graduating from Harvard with the highest award for her work on conservation and spiritual landscapes, she has been widely published and co-authored the Spiritual Guide to Bali’s UNESCO World Heritage with Dr. J. Stephen Lansing.

Julia approaches design as a “rewilding,” with a portfolio of projects including the Reef Resilience Initiative with the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, private estates with the owners of PACE Galleries, and the artist Rashid Johnson. She is a fellow of Summit REALITY & Pop!tech, received a Christensen Fund for her work in conserving Bali’s first UNESCO World Heritage site, and was a Disruptive By Design Ambassador for WIRED. Lo-TEK has been featured in The Guardian, The Washington Post and Fast Company.

Born in Australia, she regularly travels to connect with sacred sites and indigenous cultures across the globe.
