Through the exploration of the digital revolution at all scales (from bits to geography, from micro-controllers to cities, from materials to the territory), Materialising Future Cities explores the boundaries of architecture and design and meet the challenges faced by humanity in shaping our future habitat.
How can the application of urban technologies and big data lead to the transformation of the urban environment into responsive cities?
Can advanced architecture through computational design, productive urban fabric and intelligent material systems respond to emergent needs and challenges of our urban environments?
How can buildings be advanced ecological and active metabolic agents?
What are the new and emerging tools related to robotics and advanced digital fabrication towards a sustainable and optimised construction eco-system?
How can design form of products, platforms and deployments towards the development of new emergent futures?
