IIDA Perspective - Spring/Summer 2015 - 2
Spring / Summer 2015 IIDA Perspective
A breakdown of the 2015 IIDA Industry Roundtable.
No one in design epitomizes playfulness quite like David Rockwell. Perspective
sits down with the designer to chat about everything from cultivating curiosity
to inviting employees to bring their pets to work.
The newly re-opened Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum centers around
a bold concept: let everyone play designer.
For Love of The Game
The use of game thinking and mechanics to engage users and solve problems has
gained significant momentum in recent years. Perspective takes a look at how
gamification is influencing design, and how firms are using the practice to push
studios, projects, and clients forward.
Designers Off Duty
What do designers do when they're not designing? Where do they go for inspiration?
How does the life outside the design studio influence designers every day? How are
firms encouraging employees to look to these extracurriculars for inspiration?
Point / Counterpoint
The recent New York Times opinion piece "How to Rebuild Architecture" sparked
a spirited dialogue about the direction and future of design. Perspective asks two
industry professionals with opposing views to weigh in on the debate.
Scott Hierlinger, IIDA, LEED AP ID+C, and Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIIDA, LEED AP.
