Data Play

Design Informatics Pavilion 2019

The Design Informatics Pavilion is a pop-up exhibition space designed by biomorphis architects featuring a range of objects and experiences that invite you to step into the future. The exhibition will be interactive, mixing design with technology and exploring a number of themes aimed at provoking discussions on what it means to “design with data”. The Pavilion will feature work from the research centre, Design Informatics Master students and Tesco Bank who have been collaborating with us on their Mercury project for the second year running.

This year’s Pavilion will stretch out into the new courtyard outside the Bayes Centre which is the University of Edinburgh’s Data-Driven Innovation Hub hosted by the College of Science and Engineering.

The Pavilion will be supplemented by our newly launched events and exhibition space- Inspace; a collaborative hub where data meets creativity. It’s a cultural space that connects and supports people around academic research, data and technology. Design Informatics will host a number of workshops in the space and also feature an after hours exhibition of projection work across the windows of Inspace featuring work from collaborators including Bright Side Studios. More details on the events and projection programme to be launched early July.
