The GLDA Design Seminar: What drives successful design?

logo_gldaDesign is borne of many things; Ego, empathy , passion, skill, history, belief, knowledge, vision, bravery, economy and emotion all play their part in stimulating designers to solve problems, satisfy desires and overcome challenges. What drives and constitutes successful design is a somewhat more complex issue. While consensus may be reached on intent, function and aesthetics, the shifting… sands of time alter perception, attitude and environment making it an essentially ephemeral agreement. And one which design professionals have debated for eons.

To frame a contemporary vision of what drives successful design, the Garden and Landscape Design Association (GLDA) have enlisted the genius of some of Europe’s most respect design professionals for a day of insight, opinion and debate. Now in its 15th successful year, the GLDA design seminar, which is aptly entitled, Inspired: What drives successful design? will take place on Saturday 29th of January at the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin.

The speaker line-up for the eagerly awaited 2011 seminar features multi award-winning design professionals of national and international acclaim, including, Tom Stuart-Smith, Róisín Heneghan of Heneghan Peng Architects, Hugh Ryan MGLDA and James Doyle of James Doyle Associates.
