Placemaking is a collaborative process of designing spaces to enhance their use for the inhabitants. It involves multiple stakeholders from designers and engineers to community members and technologists in order to be successful. Digital placemaking is the use of technology that is traditionally from stage production in order to create compelling experiences in shared spaces.
Robb Pope and Nick Moser will speak about the state of the art of digital placemaking, the process, and case studies showing successful projects. Nick is a creative technologist with deep roots in advanced fabrication who creates strategies for clients to effectively implement large scale placemaking projects and Robb has a background in innovative digital installations, creating complex volumetric installations and interactive digital experiences using cutting edge technology.
