Every year the Type Directos Club exhibits the winners of its cornerstone communication design and typeface design competition. In 2016, the competition amassed 2,000 submissions from 58 countries resulting in 215 chosen winners showing typographic excellence in various mediums.
#TDCglobal is an interactive installation that shows the location of winning contributors from around the world. By using hand gestures (think Minority Report), you can visualize winning entries from any geographic regions and learn about the concepts behind each work.

Created in collaboration with filmmaker, Whitney Dow, this second installment of the Whiteness Project took form as a week-long interactive installation at the Tribeca Film Festival, New York. The triangular space, which creates a communal space for participating audience, is designed by LOT-EK. The projections and audio system are designed by Arup.
We used flickr to photograph audience members as they enter the space. Within seconds their skin patches are added to a color wheel, arranged from dark to light, questioning the perceived color of their skin and the public perception of racial identity. Live tweets and analytics data of the live website visitors are displayed next to the color wheel.
The audience can use the provided mic to activate interviews by calling out the name of a person displayed on the grid. We used google voice recognition to trigger the conversation between the audience and the observer.

An online interactive tool to help community members get a grip on the concept of Floor Area Ratio. What Is FAR? lets you manipulate virtual blocks as it takes you step-by-step through the process of how Floor Area Ratio controls the size and shape of your building. After you understand how the rules of zoning work, you can use the Neighborhood Tool to see how these rules can shape a whole neighborhood, and how your neighborhood might change if the city changes the zoning rules.
Developed to compliment CUP’s What Is Zoning? toolkit as part of the Envisioning Development Toolkits, a series of teaching tools that foster conversations about land use and urban development.
