Join the MIT Museum for the launch of the MIT Morningside Academy for Design (MIT MAD), which will be housed in the Metropolitan Storage Warehouse with the School of Architecture + Planning. The launch at the MIT Museum will feature a day of dynamic presentations by designers and thought leaders in dialogue on how interdisciplinary design can influence and frame our responses at this time of extraordinary global need.
The forum will reveal the importance of design to a variety of disciplines and enterprises: from the humanities to STEM, from industrial production to community-based solutions. Each of the three sessions will be followed by a conversation moderated by an MIT faculty member, with questions and comments from the audience encouraged.
