Founded in 2013, TEMPLO was set up as an experiment to see if design could be pushed into new territories to make real political & social change. Since then the studio’s work has helped arrest war criminals, been a part of the controversial 2015 UN Gaza Conflict inquiry and has produced groundbreaking work exposing Sri Lanka's war crimes.
