UXSG Meetup #3 - Commercial, Health & Social Spaces
Thursday, 14 March 2013 from 19:00 to 21:00 (SGT)
UXSG meetups are a bi-monthly event where we invite people from different fields to share about their personal design stories, journey, project case studies or best practices. It's about learning and growing together as a group, taking and giving back to the community.
In this event, we are taking a short break from the same old web/mobile to explore one of the most exciting domains today.
This evening is all about how things are planned and designed in the physical space around us. We are very fortunate to get a wide variety of speakers that will cover everything from 3d kinect, ergonomics, interior deisgn and architecture to art installations.
