This morning design director and curator Andrew Blauvelt spoke about Walker design at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C., as part of a public program series featuring 2009 National Design Awards recipients. The Walker was this year’s winner in Corporate and Institutional Achievement. Andrew spoke about technology and design alongside Jeff Han of Perceptive Pixel, later taking questions from Aneesh Chopra, U.S. chief technology officer.

The first 11 or so minutes are without sound or are the audience getting in their seats, but after that, the quality is quite good.
In the afternoon, all the award winners were invited to the White House for lunch with First Lady Michelle Obama.
