Making Places: Designing for the Non-Traditional Media Canvas

  • Arthur Satz Auditorium, New York School of Interior Design 170 East 70th Street New York, NY, 10021 United States (map)

When you walk into a building’s lobby, an office, or a store that’s filled with static imagery, it often feels passive and indifferent to you, and its environment. We live in a world where we expect well-designed spaces to offer dynamic, relevant, and delightful experiences. Think of motion activated media walls, slices of digital windows revealing unexpected views of the city around you, beautiful undulating architectural lighting that changes with the direction of the sun or speed of the wind, and other innovations customized for the specific experience of architectural space.

Drawing on his technical and creative expertise, Michael Schneider, ESI Design’s senior designer and AV technologist, will explore how to navigate both architecture and content when designing for this world of non-traditional media canvases. Schneider will highlight case studies of his recent projects that have captured the public’s attention and imagination—from Washington, D.C.’s Terrell Place to eBay’s Silicon Valley campus—and reveal how non-traditional displays are reshaping the future of interior spaces and design.
