The 8th Urbis Designday was held in Auckland on Saturday 23 March. Thirteen Whitecliffe students and recent graduates collaborated with Hewlett Packard to transform the Silo space at Wynyard Quarter. Interpreting this year’s theme Journey of Connections, the collaboration delivered an interactive design and technology experience within six raw and interesting silo spaces know as the Silo Six.
Urbis Designday guests encountered organic, transient and shifting installations, connected and activated both by the physical space and by technology. Thanks to HP technology visitors were able to vote for their favourite artwork, the winner was Leah Surynt with two pieces Do your dishes and 3/3 Publication (a collaboration with fellow students Luke Jenkins and Michelle So), congratulations Leah!
