Design for Smarter Public Spaces

Sunday, March 13
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 8ABC
531 E 4th St


As our cities and public infrastructure gets smarter – from digital advertising and public WiFi to sensing and mobile, location-based services – our experience of neighborhoods, places, and spaces is transforming.
On this panel, frog, Arup, and LQD Wifi will explore the emerging challenges of designing for interaction in shared public space. As well as how it is changing security, serendipity, and service delivery in and among connected spaces like parks, libraries, campuses, shopping districts, and neighborhood. Come learn how making our spaces more responsive and intelligent creates entirely new kinds of business and design opportunities.
