SAN FRANCISCO, June 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DIALOGUE, the San Francisco-based agency, working with organizations and brands to help them use experiences of human connection as a competitive advantage, has partnered with unique space-rental company, Splacer and Interior Design firm, AubreyMaxwell to move the needle on the conversation on the topic of 'Place & the Future of Urban Development.'
With the changing needs of people in growing cities, it is important to understand the ways in which the creation of alternative environments and intentional spaces in cities will have an impact on urban living and how we perceive the idea of 'Place' vs. 'Space'. What is Place? How does the perception of Place shift in urban environments? How does it impact the future of urban design?
"I'm intrigued by the evolution of public spaces in our daily existence as a 'plugged in' society. The formerly active public forum of coffee shops now function as quiet, solitary pods of online focus with less and less direct human interface. The modern salon takes place online, but in that dramatic shift, the dialogue is far more global. The 'ether' is now a 'space' of its own, and I'm engaged in understanding how that changes our design of physical places" says, Robbie McMillan, Founder of AubreyMaxwell
On June 20th, gathered in the abandoned, 16th Street Station, the select list of attendees will include: British-born, former Creative Director at NOWNESS, Alex Tieghi Walker; SF Arts Commissioner, Dorka Kheen; Neighborhood Development expert, Amy Cohen and Project Director of the Street Plan Initiative, Julie Flynn; Film-maker, Theo Rigby; as well several artists and tech entrepreneurs from the likes of Lyft, focused on the 'future of place.'
DIALOGUE started in 2014 as a pop-up ThinkTank with the sole purpose to bring together thought leaders from across design, business, and arts & sciences to explore and create tangible, relevant ways to spark innovation, unleash human potential, and harness untapped intelligence for maximum impact.
DIALOGUE is the brainchild of Rimma Boshernitsan, previously a strategic advisor to Fortune 500 companies on culture, human behavior and transformation, whose diverse background also spans the art and design worlds.
"We believe that designing experiences where people are able to connect to themselves, a topic they are well-versed in, and one another while taking part in creating a collective intelligence can be very powerful. We are motivated to enable people to see beyond what's possible, to create an environment that pushes their boundaries, and to revive dialogue in a way that will shift paradigms. The way we work is different from other companies in that we aren't just focused on inner workings of organizations and outward focus of brands, we're interested in looking at humanity as part of culture at large, and how that lens can affect every touch point in our lives," says Boshernitsan.
