Putting More Ideas Into The Things We Make with Zach Kron
Do Less Better.
In this episode, Nono talks to Zach Kron (@zachkron)—senior product manager at Autodesk—about how new digital tools allow designers to work (and wether these tools make our lives simpler), and about life habits, boredom, constant connectivity and disconnection, digital clutter, and more.
Zach describes his daily job as "Banging digital tools with a stick to make them break." Since 2007, Zach has been involved in the research and implementation of software that drives real world building projects and democratizes advanced design practices. Before joining Autodesk—where he is a senior product manager–Zach worked as a designer in several Boston-area architectural offices on projects ranging in scale from furniture to bridges, and has taught at Autodesk, at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), and ACADIA (Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture).
