HP hosts webinars on architects that “are helping to build a better world”

Promotion: technology brand HP has invited designers and architects to host a series of talks discussing how forward-thinking design can better meet user needs.

The brand’s six webinars cover a range of topics, including changes in residential design following the coronavirus pandemic, design for workplace environments, how sign can be a powerful communicative tool, sustainable beach houses and the impact of small, everyday objects.

In the series, HP aims to show “how leading specialists help build a better world through smarter design and construction”.

Swiss design studio Big-Game joined HP for the first webinar in the series, in which studio founders Augustin Scott de Martinville, Grégoire Jeanmonod and Elric Petit discussed “how everyday objects can enhance the spaces where we live and work”.

The webinar describes a selection of Big-Game’s furniture and products that represent the studio’s ethos of improving living conditions through smart design and construction.

Robert Palomba, co-founder of the interior design studio Palomba Serafini Associati, presented a webinar on the conditions of post-pandemic living standards.

In the talk, Palomba explores changes in how we use our homes after the Covid-19 pandemic and how design can reflect evolving habits.

“A lot of people are starting to think about their homes in a different way,” he said. “Before, it was just a place to go to sleep or take a shower before going out with friends. Now people are starting to feel their home as a place to stay and a place to represent ourselves.”

Using their own architectural designs as examples, Brazilian studio FGMF Arquitetos partners Fernando Forete and Lourenço Gimenes led a webinar on the future of office space design.

Forte and Gimenes discuss how workplace design has changed over the past decade and how architects can better meet user needs.

In a webinar titled Balancing Digital and Natural, owner of US practice Olson Kundig Architects Kirsten R Murray suggests that office interiors should incorporate natural design elements.

Murray explains that as the workplace becomes increasingly digitized, designers need to rethink how the work environment is designed and the importance of providing a connection with nature.

Based in Lagos, Nigeria, architect Tosin Oshinowo presented a talk on the sustainable evolution of West African beach houses.

In the webinar, Oshinowo explores how gaining independence has affected architecture in African countries, tropical modernist design and projects completed by her studio, CmDesign Atelier.

Oshinowo explains how CmDesign Atelier’s beach house designs aim “to create comfortable spaces with passive systems of service, while also being able to incorporate a social sustainability”.

For the final webinar in the series, HP invited Two Worlds Design podcast host Hamza Shaikh to discuss the importance of drawings to spark conversation and “create a positive impact on society”.

In the talk entitled Drawing up positive change using architecture, Shaikh explains how he uses drawing as a tool to communicate and unpacks the progression from a sketch to a realized building.
