KISD - Köln International School of Design
On November 8, 2016, KISD – Köln International School of Design, in the context of the lecture series of the KISDtalks, will host a double talk with two speakers, Michael Schmitz and Erik van Buuren. Topics will be "A Touch of Code" and "The Need for Water Design Principles".
"A Touch of Code" (Michael Schmitz):
The combination of design and programming allows a very different approach to how we design things. The so called “generative design“ is a fluid and iterative process. Using it as a design method, we can tame huge amounts of data. We can also work with a great number of single entities and make them interact with each other to produce emergent patterns and behaviors.
"The Need for Water Design Principles" (Erik van Buuren):
The water crisis is the first global risk based on impact to society (as a measure of devastation), as announced by the World Economic Forum. In his KISDtalk, the Dutch material specialist Erik van Buuren will focus on details of the water crisis and the effects on our lives. Which design principles can be developed to stop the crisis?
The KISDtalks are a public lecture series on relevant perspectives of design. They give open space for an open-minded and profound analysis of current and future issues of design, culture, society, technology, and different scientific disciplines. Topics are interdisciplinary, integrative, and provide internationality by domestic and international speakers.
The KISDtalks always take place on Tuesday at 5.30 pm. The 60-90 minutes-long presentations with “Q&A“ are a public event and free of charge.
