Rogers IBEAM

IBEAM is a joint project between Rogers, the City of Vancouver, and Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Led by designer Eugenia Bertulis and with design alumni Ada Chiu and Tyler Dennison, this project explores opportunities for collaboration and connection in design for public spaces. The objective of IBEAM is to come up with a design solution to meet the explosive growth in demand for cellphone bandwidth in a way that is appealing to city residents. The final design concept is a series of cellular network sites  which incorporate the added public amenity of electric vehicle chargers. Working with a diverse group of stakeholders, the Emily Carr team has brought the design process from concept and ideation to the creation of a working prototype. The prototype will be unveiled at David Lam park in 2013.
