Designing for diversity – Innovating for all

BY FARNAZ NICKPOUR
@ VOL 16 ON AUG 10, 2017

Dr Farnaz Nickpour is an inclusive designer, an associate professor in Design & Human-centred Innovation at University of Liverpool, and director of the Inclusive Design Research Group (IDRG) in the UK. Farnaz gave this PechaKucha at Vol.16 in London and challenged the audience to reconsider how they approach design and raised the critical question - who will use your designs and how will they use them? Are we designing for ourselves or for others? And how well do we know those ‘others’?

Designers shouldn't just work on assumptions! We need information and empathy.

Farnaz explores some wonderful new ideas for inclusive design such as an evolvable modular walking aid kit, easy to use and clean commodes for NHS to assist patients using the bathroom, and a bio-reactive food packaging solution inspired by the blind users.

British Brutalist Architecture

BY JON WRIGHT
@ VOL 15 ON JUN 12, 2017

"We've come so far in our taste and appreciation for these buildings that you can buy models of them."

In British Brutalist Architecture from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 15Jon Wright shares his love of Brutalist Architecture and in particular his love of the examples of this severe form of art in Britain.

Jon's PechaKucha helps to get rid of a few pervasive myths about Brutalism.

He also shows you what buildings we've lost (he would describe this as a disaster!), and how we saved the ones we do have with the meta-narrative being the cyclical nature of popular architectural taste and public opinion, how that is formed and how it manifests itself in popular culture.
