Sorry to re-spam you. We're closing in on the final days to register before
the Design Frontiers Workshops at Berkeley's College of Environmental
Design! I just wanted to put out a reminder for those folks who have put
off registering; now is the time to do it. Please contact me if you have
any questions!

for the Design Frontiers
Workshop Series<>

The Design Frontiers workshop series gives participants an opportunity to
work in an immersive, collaborative and multidisciplinary setting at the
cutting edge of design. Set at the Cal Design
lab<> at
the College of Environmental Design (CED), UC Berkeley, each one-week
workshop is designed by an expert in the topic domain that is pushing the
boundaries of making, and features a combination of informational lectures,
structured hands-on learning activities and self-directed open-ended

*[image: Expressive Movement Workshop image]Expressive Movement in
Architecture and Design* *July 15 - 19, 2013*
This workshop will explore the expressive possibilities of recognizing
and using motion to build more "intuitive" systems in domains as
varied as architecture, public art and industrial design. Workshop
participants interested in modern-day applications for motion studies
and social factors examine the current state of the art in sensing and
actuation technologies that can detect and perform motion, for the
purpose of applying this knowledge to working prototype designs.
Instructor: Wendy Ju <>,
Coordinator of Cal Design Lab and Research Associate in Computer Science at
Stanford University who specializes in physical interaction design and
ubiquitous computing.

Architecture** July 22 - 26, 2013
*Rather than simply design traditional buildings and then apply a
computational layer, this workshop will explore a more integrative and
synthetic approach that brings together research in the field of interaction
design (IxD), embedded systems and engineering. Participants will explore a
range of emerging software and hardware tools and techniques fordesigning,
programming, visualizing, fabricating and testing parametric robotic
architectural prototypes. Instructor: Jason Kelly
FoundingDesign Partner of FUTURE CITIES LAB, an experimental design and
research office based in San Francisco and Athens.

*[image: Desktop Fabrication Workshop image]Frontiers in Desktop Fabrication
* *July 29 - August 2, 2013*
Workshop participants interested in advanced modeling, integrated
electronics prototyping and physical fabrication techniques will learn
how to hack 3D printers, vinyl and paper cutters to create origami-folding
2D to 3D models, interactive objects with integrated sensing and
circuitry, and 3D models using experimental materials. Tutorials include
basic modeling, plotting, and fabrication programming. Instructors:
Bjoern Hartmann <>, Assistant Professor
in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, UC Berkeley, and
Ronald Rael<>
, Assistant Professor of Architecture, UC Berkeley and co-founder of Rael
San Fratello Architects.

*[image: Gestural and Natural Interfaces Workshop image]**Gestural and
Natural User Interfaces* *August 5 - 9, 2013*
Physical interfaces should allow for more natural interactions that fit the
way we think. This workshop will explore how to design natural user
interfaces, that are in fact, natural. Workshop participants interested in
responsive environments, interactive displays, gesture, touch and haptics
will learn how to prototype interfaces, design gestural languages, and test
and refine designs with user testing. Participants will be given tutorials
in gestural prototyping technologies, understanding context of use, and
user experience design. Instructor: Jody
Co-founder and Creative Director at Kicker Studio, a collective of
designers, researchers, scientists and artists that create smarter products
and human environments.
