Shaping Space and Realities

BY LAUREN SLOWIK
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

"What I find funny is the idea that doomsday preppers think they can inoculate themselves from effects of an apocalypse by collecting things we have manufactured in the last 100 years to protect themselves from the future, but in fact what we need more are tools and solutions to overcome the quandary that the demise of our species is at our own hands."

In Shaping Space and Realities from PechaKucha Night Brooklyn Vol. 4, self-proclaimed design evangelist, educator, and promoter of play Lauren Slowik explores the infinite possibilities of shaping space and realities with advancing 3-d printing technology to create new physical connections. Join her as she goes deep into the rabbit hole of how our future can be reimagined with a shift in thinking. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Thursday, September 10th, 2015.

@ VOL 26 ON OCT 10, 2015

Mr. Lu shares with us his work at Amass Design Group: everything from research to field study, from restoration to design. He calls his team the 'space guerillas' whose work is more akin to revolution. His team figures out new ways to use old spaces from the point-line-plane aspect, or attempt to restore existing architecture. They find derelict spaces and turn them into facilities like parks, bringing life back to the community.
