Last week in Miami, Whitewall continued its partnership with Lexus for the “Lexus Art Series: Art and Innovation Talks with Whitewall.” Now in its fourth edition, the series was held over two days, hosted at Design Miami/.
The panel “Designing the City of our Future” took place on Tuesday afternoon. Whitewall’s COO and Associate Publisher Laurent Moïsi moderated the conversation with music producer and founder of HABITAS Eduardo Castillo, architect and designer Christian Wassmann, and philanthropist and art designer Thomas Rom. Prompted to consider the idea that cities are places where people benefit from interacting with one another, Castillo, Wassmann, and Rom discussed Black Rock City as a case study for urban living, as well as what city planning looks like for the next generation.
Below, is the full discussion.
Lexus was the official automotive partner for the fair for a second time, and this year presented “SUNSHOWER,” an installation designed by Nao Tamura featuring the LC Convertible Concept. The project was curated by Design Miami/ Curatorial Director Aric Chen and curator and author Maria Cristina Didero.
