Learning From Logistics

Event: Panel Discussion and Book Launch
Date: Friday September 30th, 6pm
Location: Helzel Boardroom, California College of the Arts
1111 8th Street, San Francisco, CA 94107

Increasingly, new forms of communication and distribution systems—broadly
framed here as logistics—are gaining scholarly traction in the design disciplines.
Through work on management systems, data networks, mobility infrastructure
and new forms of delivery, designers are not only exploring how logistics formats
urban territory, but also projecting how logistical intelligence can be deployed
toward the future design of cities. This panel discussion presents research on the
space of logistics by scholars from different disciplines—architecture, urbanism,
business and environmental design—and will be followed by a book signing
with Clare Lyster, author of Learning from Logistics: How Networks Change Cities
(Birkhäuser, 2016). A limited number of books will be available for sale.
Free and open to the public.
