When we think about designing for the future, are we thinking about the right things? Is big data helping us or hurting us? Are we creating public space and buildings that are fostering equality and ecology, or are they impeding these things? These are just come of the questions we’ll tackle in an in-depth conversation about designing for what we don’t know yet.
