decode: design: disrupt

8 August – 13 September 2015
TCDC Bangkok

Today, the world is stepping into the third Industrial Revolution: from the beginning of steam-powered machinery and textile industry; to the golden age of manufacturing driven by moving assembly lines; to the era where digital technology and digital fabrication play an essential role in the manufacturing system. Large-scale factories are not always an advantage nor a limitation to entrepreneurs. This phenomenon is a major structural change

These changes are attributable to digital technology advancement as it creates new online consumption behaviors. Big data used to develop more innovative and precise business, co-creation mindset, open source platform, digital fabrication and direct access to investors are the reasons for several projects to come into existence and keep driving creative workers and startups to get started and flourish.

Focusing on this phenomenon that takes the world by storm and continues to lead us towards new lifestyles and future, the annual symposium, CU 2015, presents the concepts and works of visionary, thinker and designers who are behind current social and economic changes under the theme “CU 2015 SHIFT decode:design:disrupt”. The symposium will shed light on the beginning in the past, to envision possibilities and opportunities in the present, so that we can prepare and adjust for things to come in the near future.

International Symposium

Let’s shift the thinking process, creative business, and quality of life with 9 visionaries and creative thinkers.
