How can design and built environments improve social interaction? Can strong concepts create meaning in a fast-paced and superficial media context? Can architectural tools create more credible communications? Partner at Snøhetta, Martin Gran, will talk about Snøhetta’s beginning, as well as the firm’s people and projects around the world, to highlight why transpositioning makes architecture and design more collaborative and interdisciplinary, and why this is an increasingly important tool in a specialized world.
