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.
