NOWhaus is an annual event put on by IIT Institute of Design students in a nod to our avant-garde roots as the New Bauhaus. This year, we are thrilled to be hosting our party in the Chicago Design Museum where there will be snacks, drinks, and opportunities to mingle with the Chicago design community at large. The centerpiece of the evening will be the fun, fast-paced Pecha Kucha presentations given by current students about their crazy interests, wild obsessions, and quirky observations on the world as seen through the eyes of a designer. All are welcome!

Here is a teaser of some of this year’s presentation topics:

  • BEERnalysis, a user journey of American dating culture
  • Reflections on ID’s immersion program in India
  • [MIS]understanding emoji, cultural differences and misunderstandings surrounding Eastern and Western interpretations of emoji
  • RAGBRAI: a rundown of the epic annual bike-ride across Iowa

Check out a video from 2012’s inaugural event:

The event has been building ever since and this will be the best one yet!
