Usman Haque, Architecture, Interaction Systems

As the Director of Haque Design + Research Ltd., Usman Haque has pulled together issues of data, kinetics, collaboration, architecture, and communication. His work brings together various areas of contemporary design practice; bringing interaction in touch with information, combining kinetics with collaboration, and tying the architectonic to the technologic. Each of his projects touches a range of disciplines – and often brushes the sky. He argues that contemporary “technologies alter our understanding of space and change the way we relate to each other. We no longer think of architecture as static and immutable; instead we see it as dynamic, responsive and conversant.” Like the fabled Alice, Mr. Haque found a doorway where before there was only cold reflection. Join us this morning to get a look at what Mr. Haque found on the other side.
