Austin Design Week 2019 Presents: Opening Night Presented by AT&T

Organized by: Austin Design Week


Join us for a very special event to kick off Austin Design Week 2019! Hear from our opening keynote, Tamie Glass from the UT School of Architecture, meet other designers and design enthusiasts, and get ready for an exciting week ahead. Drinks provided.

Keynote Speaker:

Tamie Glass is an associate professor in the School of Architecture at The University of Texas at Austin, where she also holds an appointment in the School of Design and Creative Technologies in the College of Fine Arts. As an advocate for human-centered design education, she contributes to university-wide initiatives focused on bridging disciplines. Her professional career led her to Germany, where she worked for Daimler's Corporate Identity Design team, followed by practice in London with internationally renowned design firms Virgile and Stone and Conran & Partners. Most recently, she served as a visiting director at two of UT's most progressive institutions—the Design Institute for Health housed in the Dell Medical School and the Blanton Museum of Art. Birkhäuser Switzerland published her book Prompt: Socially Engaging Objects and Environments in the summer of 2018. As a thought-starter for designers, it explores modes of psychosocial interaction and engagement within spaces. In addition to her teaching and research on designing for human behavior, she maintains an award-winning practice in Austin, TX. When not creating space, you can almost always find Tamie thinking, teaching, or writing about making space.
