As Editor-in-Chief of Dezeen, Marcus Fairs draws upon his years at the vanguard of design publishing to reveal how he sees design shaping the world around us. How is design being deployed to improve quality of live while also enabling new ways of making, building, sensing and doing?
Intersecting research, technology and innovation, design shapes nearly every aspect of life and defines how the world lives, works, consumes and connects. As society enters an unprecedented period of urbanisation, digitisation, population growth and ecological transformation, design holds great potential as an enabler of positive transformation.
Following the talk, view the Ground Level of NGV Triennial, the NGV’s landmark exhibition exploring cutting edge art, technologies, architecture, film, design and sculpture.
