The Robotic Revolution in Architecture and Design

Hosting a panel this Saturday at Sydney University, presented by the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning as part of the Fabricating Futures Exhibition for Sydney Design Week 2015.

Here are the details:

The panel discussion will explore the challenges and developments surrounding robotic integration into architecture, art and design, focusing on the advances in real time sensor feedback, and social and human-robotic interaction.

The Robotic Revolution in Architecture and Design begins the discourse surrounding robotic fabrication and creative robotics in preparation for the RoblArch2016 conference themed 'Trajectories' hosted by the University of Sydney in March 2016.

Moderated by Fenella Kernebone, the forum will feature leading robotics experts from architecture, design, fabrication and creative robotics.

Create Design Awards

Tonight am getting amongst it with Australian designers as the MC for the Create Design Awards. Awards includes emerging talent, identity, illustration, interactive & digital, motion design, packaging, photography, print: creative, print: commercial, sustainability, typography and website. Certainly puts this little site's efforts to shame when you look at how the bosses do it.
