Title: Towards an open architecture
Speaker: Jonathan Enns, MArch, BAS, Assist. Professor, University of Waterloo
This event is free and open to all - Refreshments will be provided
Jonathan will present his work on participatory design in Architecture, focusing on new exciting possibilities for tangible user interfaces in the age of modular prefabricated building design. He will introduce the historical importance of physical models for design in architecture, then discuss his recent projects that attempt to develop scaled tangible design controls that integrate physical and digital design environments.
Jonathan is a hybrid designer, strategist, inventor and entrepreneur. With consulting experience in the technology and IOT industries, and a background in Architecture and interdisciplinary practice, his work looks to find new data driven, human centered foundations for architecture & spatial innovation.
Jonathan runs the Humanics Lab, a think tank dedicated to human centred approaches to design research, experiential prototyping, and human impact quantification methods in the AEC industry. The Humanics Lab looks for innovation opportunities that improve wellness and happiness for people.
