During one of the final panel sessions, workshop participants discussed the “millennial mindset” today when it comes to design. According to assistant editor of Boutique Design and panel moderator, Christina Green, “surprisingly, none of these young designers—students the NewSchool of Architecture & Design and its Domus Academy School of Design in San Diego, as well as from the environmental design program at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena—presented concepts that were overtly tech-oriented. For them, it was about finding ways to cash in on untapped demographics, finding solutions to changing economic climates and above all, creating immersive guest experiences.”
