Topic: Design and Scale: Does Size Matter?
At a time when hundreds of millions of people are moving to new and existing cities and skyscrapers are reaching ever higher, how can we maintain a sense of proportion and human scale in what we design and build? Is there still a place for the small, alongside the big?

Format: 8 players interview each other, one-on-one, one after another. The conversation starts with Player #1 introducing Player #2, who shows five images in five minutes. Player #1 then interviews Player #2 for five minutes. Player #2 then introduces Player #3, who shows five images in five minutes. Repeat until Player #8 introduces and interviews Player #1.
