Description


Designing the Human-Centric City

Drawing on some of Heatherwick Studio’s most recent work, explore how thoughtful design can create context-driven, human-centric places that encourage people to experience their urban environment in new ways. Demonstrating how urban interventions can unlock a neighborhood’s potential, Mat Cash will present the design development behind projects including London’s Coal Drops Yard, Cape Town’s Zeitz MOCAA, Shanghai’s 1000 Trees, and New York’s Vessel.

Mat Cash
