Design by technology: interactive experiences that fuel social interaction

DDW Talks: Interactive Experiences

Borderless | Permanent installation MORI Building

Computational design methods have given architects, artists and designers unprecedented freedom of creation. But can they empower people to truly become who they are, connect with each other and get closer to nature?

Find out how innovative design and manufacturing techniques are driving a trend for experience-based art, design and architecture that improve wellbeing and fuel social interaction. A panel discussion with Patrik Schumacher, principal at Zaha Hadid Architects, media artist Refik Anadol, Takashi Kudo, communications director at art collective teamLab and Ralph Nauta, co-founder of Studio Drift will navigate how technology, science, art and the natural world can converge in interactive, impactful spatial experiences.

FRAME founder and director Robert Thiemann will lead and moderate the DDW Talk. After the talk viewers are invited to join a symposium hosted by Lars van Vianen, co-curator of and director of Scape Agency.

During the symposium we take a deep dive and explore how the design technologies that advanced architectures physical manifestation into the 21st century, now increasingly infuse softer social parameters: are we no longer designing space for social interaction, but is social interaction designing space?
