Lecture «How Does Design Change the City?»
What is a product and services design consulting practice? How does it work? How is it evolving to address emerging urban challenges? What ultimately drives design discovery in its commercial, technical or poetic aspects? The creative director of frog’s Seattle studio Scott Nazarian, whose lecture opens the summer programme 2012, will address these questions. In his lecture, Scott will illustrate the company’s multi-disciplinary perspective, in which interactive design, architecture and information technology work towards «smart urban environments», using the example of frog’s collaboration with OMA/AMO. Created in 1969, frog is now legendary in the design world. Among its accomplishments are the design of Apple’s first ever portable computer, Sony Trinitron TV, and Lufthansa’s brand. Now frog works with the world’s leading companies, such as Disney, GE, HP, Microsoft, MTV, Siemens, and many others. More than 1,500 specialists work in frog’s 13 studios around the world.

«ANTI – object», lecture of famous Japanese architect Kengo Kuma
In Anti-Object, Kengo Kuma argues that this mindset prevents us from establishing a healthy relationship with the external world and suggests that an alternative form of architecture is not only desirable but possible as well. His approach is illustrated with a discussion of works by his office in which he has sought, by various tactics, to avoid objectification. The ideas embodied in these diverse projects have much in common with the Japanese tradition, not of 'monuments', but of 'weaker' buildings characterised by their use of natural light and natural materials.
