On Friday, May 18, starting at 1pm, Studio-X NYC was thrilled to host a group conversation with four emerging architectural thinkers, all busily pushing the boundaries of contemporary editorial and spatial practice.

The event included a moderated discussion featuring Bryan Boyer from Helsinki Design Lab and Brickstarter, and co-author of the recent study In Studio: Recipes for Systemic Change; Rory Hyde, blogger, journalist, and author of the eagerly anticipated forthcoming book Future Practice; architect Martti Kalliala, co-author (with Jenna Sutela and Tuomas Toivonen) of Finland: The Welfare Game; and Jenna Sutela of OK Do.
As Rory Hyde has written, “there are designers around the world eagerly carving out opportunities for new kinds of engagement, new kinds of collaboration, new kinds of practice and new kinds of design outcomes; overturning the inherited assumptions of the design professions.” This lively roundtable discussion, free and open to the public, will thus explore everything from the entrepreneurial re-design of whole nation-states and the long-term needs of a sustainable economy to small-scale local interventions and other spatial provocations in the urban landscape.
