Design: The New Liberal Arts in a Tech-Culture?

Time: 6:00pm – 7:30pm
Venue: Tariq Rafi Lecture Theatre – Habib University

About

The traditional liberal arts provided "an integrated understanding of human experience," in the 20th century. Does design act as an integrative discipline of understanding, communication, and action in the 21st? Four panelists, hailing from art, research, finance and engineering, and all engaged with/in design practices, weigh in on the argument by Carnegie Mellon's former head of design, Richard Buchanan, that design is the new liberal art of technological culture.

Panelists:

Hamayun Sajjad: Executive Vice President and Head of United Bank Ltd Innovation Group, recognized by Visa and EY as Asia's top 100 Fintech leaders.
