Robots + Calculators have re-shaped how we theorize, conceptualize, generate, develop, produce, and assemble our constructed environment. This lecture explores the the evolving relationships designers have with technologies and why design innovation may be more dependent on the new relationships we are able to generate with the whole of technology than with any specific technology itself.
Leighton Beaman presents his research, teaching approach, and emerging technologies and the impact of technology on design practice in "Of Robots + Calculators", in MArch 2009. This lecture is part of the Explore UT Series, which welcomes visitors from inside and outside of the university community to learn what types of research is being conducted at the University of Texas, Austin and to engage in conversations on its impact.
