Web design as a profession is still in its infancy and and we're only just started to scratch the surface. Rather than trying to re-invent the wheel, we'd be wise to look around us and draw inspiration from more established industries. There are obvious correlations between what we do and the built environment, so the field of architecture is a natural target. In fact, we already use terms such as information architect to describe a portion of what we do and techniques like design patterns which have their roots in the architectural world.
During this talk, Andy will guide you through some of the core architectural concepts that relate to the web. He'll look at how architects attempt to guide human behaviour through the physical spaces they create and how we can bring some of these practices into our own daily lives. By the end of this talk you should have a new found appreciation for the field of architecture and never look at buildings quite the same way again.
