Going Viral: Blurred Boundaries
When: Monday, May21, 6-8pm
Where: Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place, New York, NY
The AIANY Global Dialogues Committee has dedicated 2012 to “uncovered connections” with the intention to investigate issues that are similarly impacting multiple regions, cultures and individuals. Going Viral explores the impact that social media, technology and device culture are having on our design process, and ultimately the way we practice. How do we shape a global conversation? How are we changing the relationships between academia and the profession? What is the impact of hyper information sharing and critique? Throughout the evening, the topics of communication, research, collaboration, and data distribution will be addressed and debated.
Bjarke Ingels of BIG, Toru Hasegawa of Morpholio and Columbia University, Carlo Aiello of eVolo, and David Basulto with David Assael of ArchDaily will come together for a lecture and panel discussion moderated by Ned Cramer, editor-in-chief of Architect. In addition, selected game changing blogs and websites will be exhibited as Voices Going Viral on the evening of the event. Visit AIA NY Global Dialogues for further information.

Mark your calendars: On Monday, May 21, Going Viral, a panel discussion organized by the AIANY Global Dialogues Committee that explores the impact that social media and technology have on design, will take place at the Center for Architecture. One component of the evening is the Voices Going Viral Exhibition, of which this blog is a part. The exhibition and inclusion of my blog are news to me, so I'm curious to see how the exhibition presents mine and other voices "going viral." Some information is below, but check out the long description on the AIANY Global Dialogues website for much more on what promises to be an exciting evening.
