A panel discussion regarding empathy and egotism and their respective roles in the design process.
Nov. 29, 2007 at 6pm
Members of the Panel:
Design Observer recently featured a short article by Adrian Shaughnessy entitled The Designer’s Virus
, which discusses the contrast between empathetic and egotistic designers. Our topic will discuss these two points as they relate: can empathetic designers working with restraints better solve design problems (or better suit their clients’ needs) or will the egotistic designer prevail (with no limit to his or her thinking beyond personal expertise)?
The panel discussion will begin at 6:30 followed by questions from the community.
