Dezeen has teamed up with DesignMarch to livestream a day of talks that focus on design’s role in shaping alternative futures. Tune in from 1pm Reykjavik time to watch the second session live, which will include a talk by Pentagram partner Giorgia Lupi.
DesignTalks is a programme of live talks taking place at the Henning Larsen Architects-designed Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre in Reykjavik, Iceland, which will be moderated by Dezeen’s founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.
The second session will focus on environmental restoration and the notion of rewilding, as well as the design of data, information and digital spaces.
The session will feature contributions from an array of architects, designers and experts including architectural researcher Stefán Laxness, Pentagram partner and information designer Giorgia Lupi and DOGA managing director Tor Inge Hjemdal, among others.
DesignTalks will take place throughout the day on May 4 in Reykjavik and will be split up into three themed sessions.
The first session was livestreamed earlier on Dezeen and focused on approaches to resilient design, circular thinking and regeneration, with featured speakers including architect and founder of Exploration Architecture Michael Pawlyn and Mexican designer Gabriela Sánchez y Sánchez de la Barquera.
The third and final session will begin at 3:15pm Reykjavik time and will focus on how designers are expanding realities into the digital realm, with contributions from digital fashion designer and founder of The Fabricant Susanne Vos and Arnhildur Pálmadóttir, founder of architecture practice SAP.
The day will conclude with the official opening ceremony of the DesignMarch festival, Iceland’s largest design fair. Curated by Hlin Helga Guðlaugsdóttir, the festival brings together discussions, exhibitions and shows spanning architecture, fashion, interiors and graphic design.
