Design Process Innovation Symposium

Michelle from Gensler asked us to extend this invitation to a symposium on design process innovation to benefit the A + D Museum in Los Angeles.
Innovation affords designers new opportunities from idea generation to product manufacturing, while expanding the relevance of their design product and confronting the issues presented by a changing world. While today’s designers have at their disposal powerful digital design software and fabrication machines, technology is just one aspect of a wider process revolution being driven by globalization, compressed time-to-market, ecological sensitivity and increased sophistication in consumer taste. This symposium brings together experts from a variety of design disciplines to analyze trends, share ideas, and look at the future of the design process.
Speakers, panelists & moderators include: Geoff Manaugh (BLDGBLOG), Saffet Bekiroglu (Zaha Hadid Architects) and Sam Lubell (The Architect's Newspaper). It's not cheap to attend ($75 advance tickets, $100 at the door, $45 with a valid student ID), but I'm sure it will be a worthwhile event, and the proceeds are going to a good cause. To purchase tickets or to learn more about the event, go here.
