XYX Lab wins Designers Australia Awards

XYX Lab is a team of experienced design researchers exploring gender-sensitive design practices and theory. Their work is grounded in feminist and queer theory and activated through real-world projects, operating at the intersection of gender, identity, urban space and advocacy. Through research, they bring together planners, policy makers, local government and stakeholders to make tangible the experiences of underrepresented communities in urban space and planning.

XYX Lab offers Gender-sensitive training for inclusive placemaking ; Toolkits to improve the safety of women and girls on public transport; and Design guides for improving housing for older women.

In 2021, XYX were a winner at the Designers Australia Awards in the Interact Category for their installation 'HyperSext', platforming the lived experiences of women, girls and LGBTIQ+ people in public spaces.
