There’s no question that social media and mobile devices have a daily impact upon our lives – but what effects do these relatively recent technologies have on the design process? Next week, the AIANY Global Dialogues Committee will host Viral Voices: Global Discussions, a panel that will investigate the impact of social media, technology and device culture on the design process — and ultimately the way architects and designers practice. Topics range from “how to shape a global conversation” to “how to foster relations between academia and the profession” and “how to harness the power of hyper information sharing.” The expert panel of industry professionals includes Mark Wigley, Dean of the GSAPP at Columbia University, David Basulto and David Assael of ArchDaily, Carlo Aiello from eVolo, David Fano from CASE, Toru Hasegawa from The Morpholio Project/the GSAPP Cloud Lab, Tim Maly from Wired magazine, Cliff Kuang from Fast Companyand Inhabitat‘s very own founder and Editor-in-Chief, Jill Fehrenbacher. Join in on the conversation at The Center for Architecture, THIS THURSDAY, May 2, 2013, 6:30PM–10PM. Admission is free, but you must RSVP.
