Dr. Thomas Garvey was invited as the first Canadian industrial designer to give a keynote address at the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) of India Design4India Design Summit 2018. Under the summit theme “Transcending into the Future of Design: Inclusive, Immersive, and Intelligent” his presentation was entitled “Urban Design: Minimal Living and Lifestyle” on September 26, 2018. His interest in small-scale living spaces grew out of his work in New York on space station interiors and led to doctoral studies at the University of Tokyo on the topic of housing and urban density. He was also a juror for the Design4India Design Awards.
