IDEO Partner Fred Dust talks about the evolution of Design Thinking over time and how it can be applied to architecture and built environments. Through personal anecdotes and examples from iconic IDEO projects, he will show how human-centered design tools such as prototyping can help architects do better and more impactful work.

Fred works with leaders and change agents to unlock the creative potential of business, government, educational, and philanthropic organizations. He works with organizations confronting significant disruption stemming from shifts in consumer behavior and social trends, new technology, and regulatory and economic pressures. He advises a range of new and old media companies, public and private, on confronting massive shifts in the competitive landscape. In the financial sector, Fred has guided leading banks and insurance providers as well as government institutions such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, and the U.S. Social Security Administration, establishing citizen-centered strategies and structures to implement them. As a board member and senior advisor, he collaborates closely with nonprofit and philanthropic foundations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Knight Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, and Bloomberg Philanthropies to create new frameworks for engaging with stakeholders to improve the impact of their programs.
