Design meets mathematics

6:30pm, 31 Jan 2023

Designers and theorists talk about the intersection of design and mathematics in visualisation, architecture, digital design and industry.

Design is at the interface of function, beauty and order. Throughout history, it has had many points of contact with mathematics, which is the language for describing patterns. These have ranged from the theory of proportion, to symmetry and architecture, to grid systems and modularity, to simplicity and industrial design, to self-similar fractals and aperiodic tilings, to the dependence of behaviour on the layout of space, to the design of intelligent organisations.

At this meetup, a mix of designers, artists, physicists and mathematicians talk about the present and future of design and mathematics. Three five-minute talks are interspersed throughout the evening to stimulate informal conversation. The purpose of the event is to explore ideas and build connections.

The event takes place at the London Institute for Mathematical Sciences, on the second floor of the Royal Institution in Mayfair. Drinks are provided. If you would like to attend, please email at@lims.ac.uk.
