Dot Dot Dot: MFA Interaction Design Lectures, February 18
Wednesday, February 18
145 E Houston Street
ABOUT "THE MODULARISTS" LECTURE
The insight required to craft modular systems requires designers to think through several variations of form and function—often beyond the original intent of an object, product, or service. How much does the design of discrete modules affect the integrity of the larger system? Should designers expect to wield control over any part of a user experience of modular systems? Four guest lecturers will examine a range of projects and trends in modular design, culminating in a discussion of the role of modularity among a group who value putting the power to create in the hands of everyone.
* Nick Bilton, Design Integration Editor and User Interface Specialist at The New York Times and The Times Research & Development Lab
