Joshua Walton has spent his career blurring the lines between the physical and digital. Prior to his role as Design Architect for Microsoft Hololens and Windows Holographic, he co-founded the LAB at the Rockwell Group in 2008, an interactive architecture group. His early work focused on design and computation, culminating in the entry installation for the 2008 Venice Biennale. This work was his transition to the creation of interactive spaces and platforms, including the Canne award winning west lobby installation at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Other interactive architecture projects and clients include JetBlue JFK T5 Terminal, Google, Starwood Hotels, the Imagination Playground, and Intel at Maker Faire.

Consistent teaching and workshops are a vital part of Joshua Walton's process including courses at Colubmia University, Parsons School of Design, and the Copenhagen Institute for Interaction Design. In 2000 he was part of a team at the Yerba Buena Center for Art's Young Artist at Work program that received the presidential teaching award for their work with at-risk youth in San Francisco. He holds a BFA in Interaction Design from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy.

Joshua Walton is the recipient of many design awards including the IxDA Interaction Awards for Plug-in-Play 2012, the Gold Key Award for Excellence in Hospitality Design for his work on the Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and the D&AD Environmental Design award for the 2008 Venice Biennale exhibit 'Hall of Fragments'.
