The built environment is increasingly overlaid with a digital layer, an onion skin of sensors collecting information and representing physical space in a digital realm. As technology progresses and becomes more accessible and scalable, trends are in evidence which merge the digital and architectural spaces. Light, video and soundscapes are harnessed to redefine the relationship between occupant and space.

In this new world, what distinguishes between designing architectural lighting and designing narrative light?
What common language can be established for collaboration, when architectural space is augmented by media?
How do we work together to tell the story of a space?

This seminar will leave participants with a better sense of the narrative storytelling and cross-platform collaboration and design.
