Design for a Living World Exhibit

Design for a Living World

A landmark exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt casts designers as champions of conservation.

The concept of “truth to materials” is nothing new in the design world. Even before the modern architecture movement made it a central canon, designers have always had a love affair with materials, inspired by their textures and behaviors and often testing their limits.

Museum of Arts and Design Digital Wayfinding and Interactives

Museum of Arts and Design

MAD World

With a newly renovated building, dynamic wayfinding, and engaging interactives, the Museum of Arts and Design enters a new era.

A caterpillar requires 10 days to emerge from its chrysalis as a Monarch butterfly. It takes 10 weeks for a downy cygnet to transform into a Trumpeter swan. For the Museum of Arts and Design, metamorphosis has been a decades-long undertaking.

Newhouse, New Media

At Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications, a double marriage between media and content, tradition and innovation.

It’s hard to imagine a better venue for celebrating the medium and the message than Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. One of the premiere mass communications schools in the U.S., Newhouse is both a bastion of the principles of free press and a beta site for education in the digital era.

Official NYC Information Center

Virtually There

The Official NYC Visitors Center is a digital-era launching pad for New York tourists.

The renovation of the Official NYC Information Center is not a mere before-and-after story. In the hands of New York-based designers Local Projects and WXY Architecture, the storefront space in midtown Manhattan has been transformed from a stereotypical visitor-service station into a new model that swaps printed maps and brochures for digital interfaces that are seamlessly integrated with the architecture.

Sony Wonder Technology Lab

World of Wonder

The second-generation Sony Wonder Technology Lab negotiates a new deal between technology, architecture, and experience.  

In many ways, the newly renovated Sony Wonder Technology Lab—Sony Corporation of America’s interactive, free-to-the-public museum in midtown Manhattan—reflects the evolution of our love affair with technology.
