May 2, 2019Digitial Design Community Event – 5/9
The New York Digital Design Community is a forum that focuses on showcasing technology-driven design by leading New York individuals, practices and universities. It is dedicated to disseminating the application of cutting-edge design methodologies and fabrication techniques related to digital technologies, computation, and digital prototyping in a collegial setting. In a series of quarterly events, design leaders from multiple industries showcase their most current and stimulating work at a variety of scales and stages of design. These gatherings bring together individuals from across the field who are in the forefront of developments in digital design, establishing a platform for those who are actively shaping a new profile for their industries and raising the bar for methods of practice in the future.
In this installment of the quarterly series, three practitioners from WeWork and SHoP Architects will showcase the various design methods and technologies that they employ in their workflow, highlighting their recent work on in-house design tooling and infrastructure, as well as visualization techniques in their practice, respectively.
