As Rory Hyde has written
, "there are designers around the world eagerly carving out opportunities for new kinds of engagement, new kinds of collaboration, new kinds of practice and new kinds of design outcomes; overturning the inherited assumptions of the design professions." This lively roundtable discussion, free and open to the public, will thus explore everything from the entrepreneurial re-design of whole nation-states and the long-term needs of a sustainable economy to small-scale local interventions and other spatial provocations in the urban landscape.
This will be a lunchtime conversation (feel free to brown bag it), kicking off at 1pm sharp.
