The first lunchtime webinar for the iPACT network will take place on Tuesday 3rd October on TEAMs with Dr Paul Cureton Director of Post-Graduate Research at Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts and Senior Lecturer in Design at ImaginationLancaster

He will discuss challenges and future directions of Urban design using his novel process-based methodologies including #Geodesign game cards and gameboards. His research explores the critical interface of new and emerging socio-technological relationships for Future Environments including spatial planning, 3D GIS modelling and design futures.

Geodesign is a framework and series of methods developed by Carl Steinitz for collaborative decision-making between built environment professionals and natural sciences using geographic information systems (GIS). The framework has been established for over twenty-five years and is pertinent to contemporary coastal challenges and multidisciplinary work for climate futuring (Hollstein, 2019). This presentation presents a state of the art of Geodesign. It offers a new delivery mechanism for Geodesign using UX cards as a design tool for non-traditional audiences and an applied case study to demonstrate its relevance in complex coastal environments for resilience.
