This moderated panel will explore how disruptive technologies present new pathways and methods to design and production. The following questions will be addressed:

  • What are these new methods of design and production?
  • Who are the new practitioners and what is their relation to the ‘Legacy’ architects, engineers and associations?
  • What are the Universities doing to engage these changes in design and production?
  • What are the spaces and networks in the city that are emerging within this evolving context?

These topics will be discussed by our distinguished panelists:

  • Mark Cichy, Director of Computation and Research, DIALOG
  • Mania Meibodi,  Post-Doctoral Researcher in Digital Fabrication, Digital Building Technologies Institute, ETH, Zurich
  • Renn Scott, Industrial and Interaction Designer;  Entrepreneur in Residence, Ryerson Fashion Zone
  • Tom Bessai, Managing Director, Design Fabrication Zone, Principal, Denegri Bessai Studio
