The night of May15 was a big one for us. The cheese platters came.
Two large cheese platters arrived for our Small Talks, Big Ideas evening. The Society for Environmental Graphic Design asked us to host the evening and we were happy to do so.
We always have a range of projects we want to talk about. For the evening with SEGD we went with a perennial favorite. The Dreamcube, the 2010 project for the Shanghai World Expo, was 40,000 square feet of integrated, interactive technology and media. Tech and Media Designer Michael Schneider walked our guests through the process and real world challenges of designing a project like this.
Ed Purver, also of the Tech and Media department, then introduced a daily application of the technology used and the lessons gleaned from the Dreamcube.
330 Hudson is a Beacon Capital Partners renovation project in lower Manhattan. For them, ESI is refreshing the lobby with an LED installation that displays striking visuals and relevant data. The application of how people interact with different types of technology is informing the decisions made for 330 Hudson’s lobby.
