We are now in year two of a global disaster: a modern pandemic with no defined end date. Many of the rules and norms of the way things used to be are now being challenged. Incredible disruption has generated seismic shifts in the social and physical realms that will shape the future for decades, if not the century.
It seems everything must be rethought, reimagined, redesigned, or repositioned. The innovators, designers and visionaries among us already have plans and ideas in the works. And the pandemic provides the (inopportune) opportunity to fast-forward their development.
In this two-day online symposium at MIT, we will host conversations with innovators and visionaries, academics, global firms and novel startups who are accelerating new systems and products for design, cities, and the human environment.
MITdesignX empower students, faculty and researchers to build new business venturesand forward-thinking solutions that address critical challenges facing the future of cities and the human environment.
