Anab Jain

Architect

Anab Jain imagines and builds future worlds we can experience in the present moment. By creating new ways of seeing, being and acting, she inspires and challenges us to look critically at the decisions and choices we make today. A designer, filmmaker and futurist, Jain co-founded the vanguard laboratory, design and film studio Superflux with Jon Ardern to parse uncertainties around our shared futures. From climate change and growing inequality, to the emergence of artificial intelligence and the future of work, Superflux explore some of the biggest challenges of our times -- and investigate the potential and unintended consequences of these challenges. Jain is also Professor and Program Leader at Studio Design Investigations, University of Applied Arts, Vienna. Her work has won awards from Apple Computers Inc., UNESCO, ICSID and the UK Government’s Innovation Department and has been exhibited at MoMA New York, V&A Museum, Vitra Design Museum and the National Museum of China amongst others.
