  1. The Value Of Ruins

    Between The Alexandrian War of 48 BCE and the Muslim conquest of 642 CE, the Library of Alexandria, containing a million scrolls and tens of thousands of individual works was completely destroyed, its contents scattered and lost. An appreciable percentage of all human knowledge to that point in history was erased. Yet in his novella “The Congress”, Jorge Luis Borges wrote that “every few centuries, it’s necessary to burn the Library of Alexandria”.

    In his session James will ask if, as we build ourselves new structures of knowledge and certainty, as we design our future, should we be concerned with the value of our ruins?

  3. The future of wayfinding

    We’ve got pretty good at helping people find their way through today’s digital world. Information architecture, taking cues from physical architecture, has built a toolkit of wayfinding aids including menus, breadcrumbs, signage. But things are about to get a lot more interesting.

    Talk given by Cennydd Bowles.

  4. Legible London: When is a wayfinding system the answer to a city’s economic future?

    This talk will focus on the capital’s nascent wayfinding system, looking at the strategic rationale for a unified tool to support walking in the capital and an update on the development of the system so far.

    This is a joint talk by Patricia Brown and Kasper de Graaf.
