Technology, design and user experience in the built environment

Internationally recognised for his design nous, Michael underscores the importance of balancing technology with user experience. He believes good design puts user experience at the core, a concept equally applicable to buildings and any consumer product. Space dictates behaviour, Michael argues, so designers must consider how people wayfind, enter, and move through buildings as a key component of user experience. With the relentless introduction of technology, Michael shares how to find balance in environments that foster creativity, innovation, and collaboration.

For nearly two decades, Michael has been a leader in the convergence of technology, education, and design. In 1999 he set out to reinvent arts education by founding the nation's largest non-profit industrial arts facility, The Crucible. Next he led Stanford's ReDesigning Theater Project to turn theatre on its head within the world-renowned dSchool, then charted the future of making and learning while leading Stanford’s Creative Ignition Lab at Autodesk in San Francisco. He finally landed at Google X, where he helms the company’s in-house prototyping lab.
