Design Matters with Nick Puckett

Date: Feb 23 2012 – 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Location: University of Calgary downtown campus

Description:

Design Matters is a thought provoking lecture series, organized by the Faculty of Environmental Design (EVDS), that brings to Calgary a range of important speakers who explore design in our contemporary culture.

This month the series welcomes Nick Puckett, founding Director of AltN Research+Design (AltN) and Assistant Professor at the University of Kentucky, where he holds the first ever joint faculty position with the Department of Architecture and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

AltN works with architects, designers, artists, engineers, roboticists, and computer scientists, focusing on the design of embedded intelligent systems and methods for rapidly injecting digital, electrical, and material technologies into the design process. His presentation will explore how prototypes leverage the knowledge of academics and vast open source networks to continually push what is considered possible for designers to employ as design, display, and fabrication tools.
