Wangjitsu Retreat

Strategic design and experimental electronic music



I’m Pascal Wicht. I am a strategic designer, field researcher, futurist and teacher. I help people and organisations navigate towards preferable futures for humanity and adapt to a world of growing problems that don’t go away.

Welcome to my site, where I fuse critical theory with design practice. My slow-motion blog is here. I am writing a Codex to help designers drive more impact. I am also documenting my strategic design system Wangjitsu.
