SXSW 2017: Design your perfect city

SXSW - AUSTIN, TEXAS
Fredag d. 10/3-2017: 

Paneldebat/workshop (side event): ‘Business as un-usual: Co-create your perfect city’

  • Sted: Fjord Austin/Chaotic R&D, 319 Congress Ave #200, Austin TX
  • Tid: Fredag d. 10. marts kl 16-18.
  • Tilmelding: Åbent hus, kom i god tid for at sikre en plads.

I samarbejde med vores søsterorganisationer i henholdsvis Finland og Sverige, dvs. DesignForum Finland og SVID, står vi bag en serie på tre workshops, som sætter fokus på anvendelsen af strategisk design indenfor tre temaer: Sundhed, byudvikling og fremtidens fabrikation. De tre workshops vil være en kombination af oplæg fra nordiske eksperter og virksomheder og vil samtidig indeholde interaktive elementer, hvor deltagerne selv kan prøve kræfter med nordiske designmetoder i praksis.

Første workshop arrangeres ydermere i samarbejde med Fjord Austin/Chaotic R&D  i Austin, og sætter fokus på design i byudvikling igennem følgende vinkel:

Cities around the world are increasingly seen as the main force in innovation. Businesses, new technology and new ideas play an important role in determining the future of these cities, however many of them still struggle with how to facilitate and scale new concepts as well as engage businesses within city development. This session takes its point of departure in a case study and will focus on how a medium-sized city can best transform a centrally-located transit hub into a vibrant destination and public space using heavy engagement of businesses.  Participants in the session will hear presentations, discuss with the expert panel as well as be broken into small working teams that will tackle concrete problems head on and learn how to apply strategic design methods in problem-solving. In typical nordic-style design brainstorm fashion, at the end of the session, each group will present their thinking on how to best solve the challenges laid out in the case and engage in a discussion on the results and ideas with the panel experts - and each other.

The design tools and methods used for the session will be available under an open license after the workshop so that they can be used freely by anyone.

Moderator: Direktør for Dansk Design Center, Christian Bason.
