About this Event

This presentation will provide an overview of the Design Thinking approach, principles, and tools. The Sculptform pre-construction team will present solutions where techniques were used to aid designers in reaching their original design intent using real-life examples.

Christian will guide you through his nonlinear journey from architect to design thinker, complete with practical tasks to help you develop a collaborative mindset. After completing this session, you'll be equipped to apply design thinking strategies to produce better outcomes in the architectural setting. A range of Sculptform case studies will also be shared, focusing on how architects and designers can utilise their supplier connections within designs. The presentation will conclude with a Q&A, followed by networking drinks and light refreshments.
