Chairing the Design Science Debate at Central St Martins

Central-Saint-Martins-Hufton+Crow

In March I was invited by the newly formed Design Science Research Group to chair a debate called Parallel Processes, which asked how designers and scientists approach their work and what were the similarities and differences. It was hosted in the Louis Vuitton (ooh la la) lecture theatre in the new Central St Martins building in Kings Cross – a truly amazing piece of new architecture in London town. It was all rather exciting and I enjoyed meeting the fascinating panellists. On the science side we had Stephen Curry, a structural biologist from Imperial College and Geraint Rees of the Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience. On the design side we had two brilliant interaction designers Daisy Ginsberg of E.Chromi and Joel Gethin Lewis of Hellicar Lewis.
