DesignThinking Workshop

סדנת DesignThinking | שבועיים בתאריכים 21-7 ביולי, 4 מפגשים | הרשמה עד ה-3 ביולי.


Are you looking for a pioneering methodology to solve the world’s complex problems? Join us for a radical change in how we approach mobility! In this workshop, you will get the special opportunity to learn and apply a radical new problem solving approach by creator and design expert Ezri Tarazi from Technion.


What is UMI?

Urban Mobility is an explosive topic. Municipalities, Professionals & Startups tackle this topic with innovation and high-tech skilled approaches. Within this problem-solution fit process the UMI Program (Urban Mobility Integration) was founded. We consist of 3 leading institutions in startup development, design and urban mobility and two innovative cities: UnternehmerTUM,,Technion, Zone Cluster, The City of Lublin and The City of Munich. Together we are creating a radical change in howmthe world approaches the challenges of urban mobility.
UMI is a project of EIT Urban Mobility, an international consortium dedicated to accelerating solutions that improve our collective use of urban spaces, while ensuring accessible, convenient, safe, efficient, sustainable and affordable multimodal mobility.

How I stopped worrying and learned to love sea urchins / Dr. Daniel Metcalfe

In this open lecture, Daniel will talk about one of his doctoral projects, through which he will touch on issues of design for animals, cross-disciplinary collaboration and the promises (and fractures) of digital production.
Daniel is a designer and teacher in the industrial design track at the Technion who works at the meeting points and the interaction between humans, wildlife and technology.

Liora is a designer and design researcher, specializing in the field of product development and strategic innovation in the food industry. In this talk she will map the opportunities in the meeting between designers and the food industry, and will share insights on the connection between taste, shape, experience and memory.

Design-Tech Guest Lecture: Noam Dover

A lecture about the potential of mould-blown glass to tell the story of its own making process, and to reflect on its origins in both the DNA of craft and technological contexts. The practice is introduced to open digital fabrication technology while maintaining a link to craft history, recognising profound skills, innovations and knowledges, and how these knowledges accumulated into ordered techniques and material culture. The term ‘bridging’ suggests the connection between the history of vessel making and contemporary craft participation which embraces digital possibilities; mould making is the keystone in that bridging.
