    Water is our only molecule of life.

    Ever wondered about the different forms, shapes of matter and energy water can take? The relationship between drinking water, and our city life?

    Join Jane Withers, an Internationally acclaimed Designer and Curator, raise some of the most pertinent questions the world needs to ask, if we are to protect, both - Water & our Society.

    What's remarkable about her work is the element of design, through which she aims to inspire conversations around critical issues of sustainable sanitation, circularity and nature-based system, the value of rain and how traditional practices are once again informing our contemporary approaches.

    Listen in as she illustrates a completely fresh narrative around Water & Culture through her projects such as Water Loop, Wonderwater cafe and Water Futures.

    You definitely cant miss this one, and it’ll be intriguing to see you leave the webinar thinking of ‘Water' under a completely different light.

    Ravi holds patents in areas as diverse as low cost robotics and frugal ventilators. He gives away these designs practically for free. He believes Technology and design must serve the person at the last mile - the most important person as believed by Mahatma Gandhi. In the technology centric world how do you apply advanced principles like Artificial Intelligence, robotics and advanced engineering design to solve the day-to-day problems of ordinary Indians has been the pursuit of my research and has yielded several products and patents. In my talk, I share this journey and ideas with the hope that it would ignite ideas and open fields of collaboration to use design and engineering for a self-reliant India.

    The talk is about the relevance of water in shaping/sustaining human civilisation both as a fact and as a metaphor, using the example of Dholavira. Extensive study has been conducted by scholars on Dholavira which is varied but not conclusive. Here is an Architect's perspective on the city planning of Dholavira keeping in mind the relevance of water.

    Architect & Biodesigner, Shneel Malik is investigating ways in which our buildings, and our urban environments can perform biological systems such as photosynthesis. By designing at the intersection of architecture, biology and engineering, her projects are constructed from a novel living material. A material that supports the growth of microorganisms on a nanoscale, while allowing the fabrication of living, breathing systems on a macroscale. She challenges architecture to move one-step beyond the adoption of geometric forms that simply look like nature. But instead, an architecture that ‘performs’ like the systems in nature.
     
    In her masterclass, she discusses the evolution of a radical methodology, involving - biomaterials, biofabrication, & biodesign. A thought process recognised as imperative for tackling climate change. The prototypes discussed in the talk are developed for applications, such as - cleaning polluted water, and generating energy through the photosynthet

    Today, new forms of thinking are required for imagining improvement of the world. Everyone is capable of multiple forms of thinking, multiple intelligences, and the design fields cultivate these new forms of thinking. From Design Thinking to Architectural Intelligence, there is a great range of ways to liberate the imagination. In this talk, we will learn about design ecologies, design futures, and how the skill of thinking of multiples empowers designers to liberate new worlds. To inspire, this ambitious visual presentation will show examples from art and science of how to imagine and build differently, in a world of flux and flow, to produce work of wonder and delight.
