Please save the date for our annual Triangle area World Usability Day celebration.
The theme this year is: Designing for a Sustainable World.
World Usability Day 2009 is approaching design from cradle to cradle. Coming from a user-centric perspective and looking beyond form and function, we are exploring the impact design has on our world. For this year's event we've lined up a great speaker and planned a killer design competition. See below for more information.
Amy Hathaway, a Water Quality Engineer from the City of Raleigh, will be talking about the Fred Fletcher Park Water Garden design project. The project is unique in that it addresses the environmental issues of storm water runoff, water pollution and erosion in an aesthetically pleasing way that creates an enjoyable and educational park experience for visitors.
In keeping with this year’s theme, we are featuring a design challenge. The challenge is open to club members, undergraduate and graduate students in related fields and asks them to solve some of today’s sustainability design issues. Participants will present their solutions and ideas during this year’s event. Learn more about the design challenge >>
