Space Tourism: Hospitality or Adventure Industry?

BY MARYAM NABAVI
@ VOL 27 ON NOV 05, 2013

Maryam Nabavi, an Innovation Strategist at Idea Couture, talks about her strategy for the future of commerical space (i.e. Virgin Galactic) as a service industry. If you ever thought about living in space, then small bathrooms, carbon-dehydrated food, and uncomfortable sleeping arrangements are probably not what you had in mind. However, Nabavi redesigned the experience to have humans at the center of the problem so that it can be an enjoyable and memorable experience for anyone no matter their financial or physical situation.

Multidimensional Sustainability

BY NAOMI C. HANAKATA
@ VOL 127 ON JUL 29, 2015

"Truth is, sustainability can only ever be a wish, or a hypothesis. It can never be a definition of a product, or a design, or even a city and why? Because first to know whether or not something is sustainable it actually takes some time so we can observe whether or not that prediction holds true."

Architect, Planner, Researcher, Consultant … Idealist and Futurist, Naomi C. Hanakata from FUTURE CITIES LAB, ETH Zurich in Singapore explores the notions of sustainability and our shared future on earth, by first taking a step back from the now ever so ubiquitous and increasingly hollow word itself in an effort to persuade us to re-imagine the idea for a truly better future together. Hanakata touches on a multi dimensional sustainability index that would allow humanity to make decisions based on a more holistic and comprehensive idea of sustainability.

This presentation looks far forward and runs deep and positions us to better tackle the challenges of a shared future.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Friday, August 27th, 2015.

Tools for Design

  “We used genetic algorithms to iterate through thousands of designs to find which one worked the best — it’s really an analogy to evolution.” Technology Futurist at Autodesk Jordan Brandt speaks on the tools designers use to get their ideas out into the world. In “Tools for Design” from a special Tokyo Designers Week 2014 edition of PKN Tokyo Vol. 118 Jordan speaks about the power of the cloud, iterative design processes, synthetic biology and building machines and experiences for tomorrow.

Autodesk at TDW 2014

Autodesk's partcipation at PechaKucha's biggest annual event in Tokyo, as part of Tokyo Designers Week, was twofold. As part of the lineup, we welcomed Jordan Brandt, Autodesk's Techology Futurist, as a presenter -- watch his presentation, "Tools for Design," online. The crowd of 700 was also treated to a rather nice parting gift, at least for 10 lucky winners, of iPad minis loaded with Autodesk's iOS apps. A terrific evening for all, in a true celebration of design and innovation -- watch all of the presentations in the Autodesk Channel, or from the official event page.
