Designing the Future

Event Details

“We shape our buildings, and afterwards our buildings shape us.” – Winston Churchill

Churchill’s observation can easily be extended beyond buildings to all things—from the phone in your pocket to the largest city. Good design is about making the world a beautiful, functional, safe, equitable, and sustainable place—now and into the future. Through creative problem solving, purposeful design tackles such challenges as poor healthcare, substandard housing, urban development, environmental degradation, and disaster mitigation.

Prasad Boradkar, Director of InnovationSpace at Arizona State University, and Mark Chichester, Director of Design Development at Ammunition Group (“Beats by Dre” and “Kindle”) join Future Tense to consider the role of design in enhancing our lives, and those of generations to come.
