The Elegance of Design
Monday, June 18th, 6:30pm-9:30pm
Co-Merge Workplace, 330 A St
San Diego, CA
Form is nearly as important as function whether creating a consumer product, creative space or intuitive interface. Apple has in part won the hearts of its users with compelling and friendly devices. Burt Rutan, founder of Scaled Composites, has created unique and elegant aircraft that not only work well, but are works of art. Google, 3M and others have all used advances in collaborative workspace to enable the creative, ad hoc exchange of innovative ideas.
This month, husband and wife couple David and Mikeala Pearson, local San Diego architects, will walk us through their design process. They will explore the finer points of their craft, and introduce us to the design competitions they have submitted ideas to. Come for the pictures, stay for the discussion on reenergizing public spaces, creating stories with products and brainstorming better interfaces for military hardware.
