The presentation is focused on the idea of collision. There are multiple changes going on in the world at the moment, on a technological, cultural, social, demographic and political level. These changes are creating a vortex of change in human behaviour, environment, services, and business models. In his talk, Luke Pearson will try to make sense of this extraordinary change. Using design thinking he will help articulate and interpret the world using some of the studio’s work as a reference.
