World Building designates an iterative and collaborative narrative practice in which the design of a world precedes the telling of a story, producing new worlds beyond the rules of the reality in which we live. This World Building panel with experts including production designer Patrick Hanenberger (2012), Ed Cookson, project director of the London 2012 Olympics‘ digital content, and Tawny Schlieski from the Intel Labs will discuss ways to build experiences and worlds in which stories unfold in new mind-blowing ways, redefining the limits of design and narrative, moving into a landscape where art and science, design and engineering are inseparable.
