The 3rd Istanbul Design Biennial inaugurates a special collaboration with e-flux. Superhumanity is the first project by e-flux Architecture which is a new platform for publishing and disseminating new ideas in architecture and design.

Superhumanity presents more than 50 essays on the design of the self and aims to probe the radical implications of the idea that we are and always have been continuously reshaped by the artefacts we shape.
