Margaret McCurry Lecture: Ross Lovegrove

Ross Lovegrove is a designer and visionary whose work is widely considered to be the very apex of his field, stimulating a profound change in the physicality of our three-dimensional world. Inspired by the logic and beauty of nature, his designs embrace technology, materials science, and intelligent organic form, creating what many industry leaders regard as the aesthetic expression of the 21st Century. Lovegrove's designs reflect his deeply human and resourceful approach; he strives to imbue everything he designs—from cameras to cars to trains, aviation, and architecture—with optimism, innovation, and vitality. His work has been published widely in design journals and he is author of Supernatural: The work of Ross Lovegrove (Phaidon, 2004) with essays by Greg Lynn, Tokujin Yoshioka, and Cecil Balmond. Lovegrove has won numerous international awards and his work has been exhibited internationally for over twenty years, including shows at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Guggenheim Museum NY, Axis Centre Japan, Pompidou Centre, Paris and the Design Museum, London.
