Curators Malte Wagenfeld and Jane Burry in Conversation

Professor Jane Burry is the Dean of the School of Design in the Faculty of Health, Arts and Design at Swinburne University of Technology, formerly Professor and Director of the Spatial Information Architecture
Laboratory (SIAL) at RMIT University. Her research focuses on mathematics and computing in contemporary design. Jane Burry has practiced, taught, supervised and researched internationally, including many architectural projects and involvement as a project architect in the technical office at Gaudí’s Sagrada Família church in Barcelona.

Dr Malte Wagenfeld is Senior Lecturer of Industrial Design at RMIT University as well as a researcher and practicing industrial designer whose explorative designs and texts have been internationally exhibited, distributed and published. As well as designing physical ‘things’ such as furniture, products and appliances, his current design research practice investigates how to design the ‘immaterial’, in particular the design of interior climates. The aim is to create spatial environments for living and working which are healthier, relaxed, productive, environmentally responsible and engender delight.
