5 New Architecture Jobs Created By Technology

Early CAD systems were extremely expensive and involved the use of cumbersome machines operated by specially trained workers. Designers had to bring their work to the CAD Departments and wait for hours or even days to receive plotted outputs. While this way of working seems ridiculously inefficient, back in the time of the first minicomputers and mainframes, this technological advancement allowed for the production of work which previously took 10 to 12 people to complete.

6 Best Practices for Designing Experiences in Public Spaces. By Darren David, CEO and Nathan Moody, Design Director of Stimulant When asked what Stimulant does, one simple answer is that we design and develop software.

6 Best Practices for Designing Experiences in Public Spaces

But this software powers site-specific installations and experiences for people in physical spaces. We strive to reach people literally where they live, work, play, and visit, rather than online. Site-specific experiences can connect people to ideas, brands, and each other in ways that are impossible online. The often-unexpected presence of digital experiences in the real world allows the designer to have a greater intellectual and emotional impact on the end user. That’s why it’s incredibly important to understand the nuances of public spaces and the considerations for designing experiences within them.

Five Unique Spatial Design Experiences. After graduating in Industrial Design, Chiara Ferrari has developed her professional experience at architecture and design firms such as Future Systems, Heatherwick Studio, Lovegrove Studio, Zaha Hadid Architects, as well as Lissoni Associati in Milan – specialising in Interior and Furniture Design.

In 2015 she will sit on the D&AD Professional Awards Spatial Design Jury. To give us an idea of the kind of creative work she expects to see at the awards, we asked her to pick out her favourite examples of retail, exhibitions, interiors and installations from the last year. I believe any successful design project should reflect the intersection between growing technology, client brief and contemporary / local culture. UX London 2014: Dan Hill.

No matter how we design cities, people will take their own paths. Eg Highbury fields with ‘desire paths’ through the grass made by Arsenal fans on the way to a home game. Or Brasilia – designed without pavements – because the designer thought people would no longer walkOur job is to design something but the truth is in how it is used.Many architect concept diagrams don’t show people – imagining it unused. We have to stop doing that in Photoshop! 1. Chi siamo - IdLab. URBAN DATA + DESIGN.

Lessons Learned at the Intersection of Architecture and Experiential Design. Leveraging Feedback: An Urban Planner's Journey to UX Design — MotherCoders. One of the main challenges I face in moving into UX is that I need to show new projects in my portfolio that demonstrate those skills, and so far I only have one.

A couple of months ago, I stepped out of my comfort zone to participate in Neohack 2014, a hackathon sponsored by Girl Develop It and Macy’s, where I helped my team win the ‘Style Award’. Using Macy's API, I helped our team design an app called “Macy's Events”, which enabled users to shop on Macy's site by searching for products organized by events (e.g., birthday party, Valentine's Day, hackathon etc.) TheGreenEyl.

L'architettura deve interagire

Perché l'architettura quasi sempre lo trascura? L'interaction design è la disciplina progettuale che riguarda la creazione di rapporti tra gli utenti, gli strumenti e l'ambiente. La Technology Review del MIT afferma che l'interaction design "vuole essere per il mondo virtuale ciò che il disegno industriale è per quello fisico". [1] Invece di realizzare prodotti o spazi si dedica alla progettazione di 'esperienze'. IED Istituto Europeo di Design. Non-standard and Interactive Architecture (by Hyperbody)

Hyperbody’s MSc specialisation in Non-standard & Interactive Architecture (NS&IA) aims to implement innovative architecture with state-of-the-art material and information logistics.

Non-standard and Interactive Architecture (by Hyperbody)

In this context, Non-standard Architecture (NA) is defined as an architecture that departs from modernist, repetitive, mass-production principles in order to address complexity, variation, and mass-customization. Furthermore, interactivity in architecture (IA) is addressed at the level where building components and buildings become dynamic, acting and re-acting in response to environmental and user-specific needs. At MSc 1&2 level students are introduced to the basics of NS&IA, while at MSc 3&4 level they advance their expertise in parametric and scripting-based design for NS&IA.

Worldwide renowned guest lecturers and tutors including Hyperbody Alumni are invited to participate in the program for both theoretically inspiring lectures and practical workshops to be hosted in protoSPACE.

The year was 1969. In what he called an “Unwarranted Apology” for the discipline, architectural theorist Reyner Banham argued that while technological advances have often dictated innovation, architecture has often been late to adapt.

Non hanno nemmeno avuto il tempo di porsi questo interrogativo. Stavano già realizzando il connubio. L’intesa non mancava. Lo spirito di sfida nemmeno. Sono passati dieci anni da quando hanno costituito il loro studio. Un designer, due architetti e un filosofo. Non è un caso che sia così. Ma la passione per l’interaction design per Fabrizio Pignoloni nasce molto prima. È questo il territorio sul quale Fabrizio e soci si confrontano quotidianamente. “Nuove pratiche di progettazione, questo è un modo per fare innovazione oggi”, così mi dice Fabrizio ripercorrendo il suo percorso professionale ed anticipandomi il prossimo passo che compierà dotdotdot.
