This symposium will bring together computer scientists, ethnographers, architects, historians, artists and legal scholars to discuss how design influences privacy and public space, how it shapes and is shaped by human behavior and experience, and how it can cultivate norms such as tolerance and diversity.

Four main sessions anchor the day. The first sessions two focus on people: the makers, users and transformers of new spaces and technologies. The second two sessions focus on the future: looking at scenarios of radical technological change and creating a vision of the world we want to live in.
