Walt Disney Imagineering creates theme parks, hotels, office buildings, broadcast facilities, and cruise ships for the Walt Disney Company. Our program will discuss visual thinking and place making – how ideas are better expressed and experienced visually rather than verbally – and how Imagineering approaches the design process and the tools available to the design professionals to build a better environment such as placemaking, incorporating story telling into the design of buildings, how merchandising can contribute and the innovative use of technology.
