Why I Design
November 4, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm$18
Designers talk about what they do
and why they’re doing it in Vancouver.
You are invited to explore and celebrate innovation in action. Dozens of designers, stationed throughout the museum, discuss their work with you during this special evening.
Attendees will discover the stories behind the development of everyday technologies and cool things they’ve never seen before. Felix Böck from ChopValue will present his innovative products made from recycled chopsticks, and Hapa Landscape Architecture Collaborative will discuss some of the city’s most exciting new building projects. People can get a firsthand look at VeloMetro’s fully-enclosed, electric assist cycles, and ask The Alinker about their three-wheeled walking bike designed to help people stay active.
Ask the designers—ranging from those launching their careers to innovators in international corporations— what motivates them, how they do what they do, and why Vancouver inspires them to keep doing it.
