        Noel Wilson is the Lead Designer at Catapult Design, a pioneering nonprofit design firm that develops human-centered products and services to improve the lives of those who need it most. He has a broad range of previous experience, from rapid prototyping, technology R&D, playground design, design education, bicycle empowerment, to disabled/aged/child care. He has lived and worked in Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America. Noel is driven by the belief that all demographics should have access to the innovations and tools to sustain and improve their lifestyles. He has a Bachelor of Industrial Design and a BA in Communication from the University of South Australia. Designers of all kinds foster social change by communicating concepts through visual, physical and social form. The path from mind to model is shifting rapidly, the divide between 2 and 3D is converging; CAD and digital fabrication are magical; video is widespread; large team collaboration is commonplace. This talk explores the modern designer’s toolkit and how new and old visualization skills can help realize a brighter future for all. This public lecture series is brought to you by MICA’s MA in Social Design Visiting Scholars Program, supported by the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation

              LOCATION: England THE BUILD: Dover Castle was commissioned by King Henry II in the late 12th century as a mighty fortification to guard the region of Kent, situated at the shortest crossing between Britain and the Continent. Executed by the King’s finest engineer, Maurice, it cost more to build than any of Henry’s other projects. After the King’s death, his sons Richard, and then John, continued construction on the stronghold until it became the first concentric castle in Western Europe. Its magnificent square keep, intimidating forebuilding and innovatively-shaped towers live up to its reputation as the key to England. THE SIEGE: This castle was besieged by Prince Louis of France in the early 13th century. Son of Philip II, Louis came to England to attempt to usurp King John during the First Barons’ War. He seized several fortifications and marched into London. Then he turned his sword on Dover. Prince Louis’ siege machines -like the perrier -faced several layers of defences, including a palisade, before he could even hope to storm the castle and attack its garrison, led by Hubert de Burgh. This vicious fight challenged Dover’s military power, and its outcome would determine the fate of the English crown.

                LOCATION: Syria THE BUILD: Crac des Chevaliers was built by an elite order of Christian warrior monks in the 12th and 13th centuries. Called the Knights Hospitaller, these men designed the castle to dominate a key pass in what is now Syria and guard against Muslim attacks during the Crusades. Strategically positioned on a mountain spur, its steeply-sloped walls, hidden moat and deadly ramp entrance make it the crown jewel of Crusader castles. THE SIEGE: This castle was besieged by Baybars, a Mamluk Sultan who rose from slavery to usurp a king. Armed with siege engines like the counterweight trebuchet, Baybars campaigned against the Christians in the latter part of the 13th century, determined to push them out of the Holy Land forever. In 1271, he came up against Crac des Chevaliers, challenging the castle - and its defenders - to a battle that would shift the balance of power in the Middle East.

                  Like the trebuchet, the perrier works on the principle of counterpoise, with a stone missile propelled from a sling. In this case, the arm is swung by human muscle-power rather than by a heavy counterweight. Counterpoise engines were first developed 5,000 years ago in China. Their use spread to the west during the Crusader wars of the 12th century. Perriers are lighter and more easily transportable than other stone-throwing engines and were thus useful to attackers and defenders alike. Perrier weight, range, and projectile weight can vary greatly. Perriers are also sometimes referred to as traction trebuchets. Figures and naming convention based on Caerphilly Castle perrier fired by host Dan Snow in Battle Castle: Dover. Siege engine is a replica designed for longevity and educational purposes, so range and projectile weight are lower than medieval siege engines. Statistics provided by Peter Humphries, former interpretation manager for Cadw.
