Architecture: Moving beyond paper, plans and pylons | Mond Qu | TEDxMelbourne

What if you could convince the world to believe in a made up island? That’s what Mond Qu did using VR, photos, videos and very creative tagging. What does that mean for designed realities? What does it mean for virtual design? “Mond Qu is a designer, narrative animator and digital craftsman. He is the founder of United Make, an experimental think-tank and multi-disciplinary studio based in Melbourne, Australia.

He explores design through the act of making; from deep materials research, visceral immersive experiences, interactive artworks, modular furniture to large-scale speculations. Mond works between the space of research, practice and teaches internationally from London, Melbourne, Shanghai to focus on the challenges of the 21st century.”

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
