Last night, dozens packed into the Center for Architecture to join the conversation among some of the most influential in our field.   With the energy levels high, panelists Bjarke Ingels of BIGToru Hasegawa and Mark Collins of Morpholio and  Cloud Lab Columbia University GSAPP,  and ArchDaily founders David Basulto and , shared insight into the impact social media and technology have on our profession and the way in which we design.  While the panelists all share a background in design, their differences in applying technology to their particular niche  – whether to aid the design process, to collect and redistribute data, or to share information and bring awareness  -  fueled a dynamic dialogue that kept the crowd engaged and informed way past the closing hours of the Center for Architecture.
