Design Education + Technologie

Design Education and the increased deployment of technology are more than ever interconnected and become an integral part of how we interact with each other.

The intent of this round table is to introduce corporate experts, educational researchers and applied entrepreneurs to an international and design-minded audience and to discuss the discourse of how technology is shaping our design education pre- and post-COVID. 

Speakers:

* Andreas Hauser (SAP AppHaus)

* Thomas Weis (Bold Brains AG)

* Prof. Dr. Gudrun Socher (Muc.Dai)

* Dawn Ahukanna (IBM)

Design Education + Social Entrepreneurship

Navigating through a volatile, uncertain, complex period of time has caused a lot of disruptions and changes… external changes but also internal triggers are the effects and results of those self-reflections and the general pursue of purpose.

In this upcoming campfire session, we aim to explore the various opinions and accomplishments from partners of university, research, social entrepreneurship and cultural management and how pursuing a higher “purpose” will lead to a positive outcome professionally but also individually.

 

Speakers:

Anne Kjaer Bathel – Re.Di School

Audrey Leung – Macromedia University 

Lennart Schulz – Macromedia University 

Prof. Szasz – Macromedia University

Roberta Wagner – Anthouse Productions

Design Education + Architektur

Provocation – Intensifying Forms

Explores materials, fabrication, robotics, algorithms, and pioneering models of haptic and machine learning that challenge and enhance definitions of design processes and outcomes beyond the traditional boundaries of architecture, engineering, and manufacturing.

These diverse modes of thinking propagate latent matter into pedagogical, technological, ecological, and social agendas, intensifying architecture’s transformational impact on the world.

Form is the mediator of matter and thought that carries idea and outcome simultaneously shaping aesthetic surplus into social ideology and giving design political agency.

In the urgency of our current situation, we ask the question: How can and does form acquire agency? We believe it can and will demonstrate with a sampling of projects that exhibit formal and performative qualities through the employment of specific media.

The Pratt Institute New York – School of Architecture will showcase a selection of professional and academic work that establishes a mode of form-driven design that represents an ideological position.

Speakers:

* Prof. Gisela Baurmann – Environmental Mode

* Prof. Robert Lee Brackett – Material Mode

* Prof. Lawrence Blough – Technological Mode

* Prof. Abigail Coover Hume – Social Mode

* Jeffrey Anderson + Olivia Vien – Virtual Mode

* Prof. Dr. Harriet Harriss, Dekan der Fakultät Architektur
