TRENDS IN DESIGN - PART 2

Modern Ottawa | MoOt | Trends in Design by Urban Capital
Urban Capital's Trends in Design series is back in Ottawa with three new design presentations to inspire and share ideas with the city, starting this week. The topics sound really interesting.

Night 6 | SEP 13 2012
Designing Modern Furniture 
Modern Ottawa | MoOt | Trends in Design by Urban Capital
Gus* is a really neat modern furniture design company with a lot of beautiful pieces. Furniture designer David Podsiadlo will be talking about the process and challenges of designing, manufacturing and selling modern furniture. 

Night 7 | OCT 11 2012
Graphic Design is Our Access to the New World
Modern Ottawa | MoOt | Trends in Design by Urban Capital
The Ontario College of Art and Design University has a very unique architecture that has most definitely become a landmark in Toronto. Roderick Grant who's a professor, designer and co-chair of the Graphic Design Program, will be talking about the relationships between graphic design and the world we live in. 

Night 8 | NOV 8 2012
Landscape Design without Grass 
Modern Ottawa | MoOt | Trends in Design by Urban Capital
If you've been to Montreal, you're probably familiar with Claude Cormier's awesome projects like the Pink Balls or the lipstick forest in Montreal. I noticed his work in Montreal before but never knew who designed them. Now I know! He's got a lot of very interesting projects in various cities around the world and one in Gatineau. I can think of a lot of places where his work would greatly enhance the city of Ottawa... starting with Sparks Street :) That should be fun. 

Check out my previous posts about last year's presentations on the links below. 
NIGHT 1 | Fashion Trends 

Tickets are available via Urban Capital's website at $20 per night or $40 for all three evenings. All the proceeds will go to Migrating Landscapes, Canada's official entry for the 2012 Venice Biennale in Architecture.
