In Transition - Mathematics, Arts, Design and Architecture

General public Colloquium / Congress / Forum

This is a talk for a general academic audience interested in possibilities for enhancing contemporary mathematics to interact with arts, design and architecture. I will discuss on the needs for this dialogue in different levels of education, research and broader in the society. Our recent interdisciplinary activities challenging the traditions and communication of mathematics, arts, design, and architecture at Aalto University in Finland have given a new type of platform to share the beauty of mathematics systematically and open accessible layers to a useful interplay. Many outcomes and byproducts of these up-to-date experiments are perfect for applications in digital technologies such as programming, CAD, 3D printing, virtual- and augmented reality.
Some scenarios for the future development are presented.
