Sep 10th | 14:00 – 15:00 CET at Pakhuis de Zwijger
The Lectorate of Play & Civic Media is one of the organisers of the Media Architecture Biennale 20 (MAB20), and in it’s next online event will explore the question: Media Architecture, what is it, and why does it matter?
Media architecture is a newly emerging discipline, integrating digital and physical elements in the design of our cities. This program will explore how the design and deployment of new media technologies like urban screens, interactive art installations, and digital sensor networks can shape urban life beyond the mere spectacular, by envisioning and fuelling public debates about possible futures of the media city. Join us in this conversation and, together, let’s explore how can Media Architecture help us to critically reflect on and envision the future of our cities?
Speakers: Nanna Verhoeff (Utrecht University); Frank Suurenbroek (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences); Dave Colangelo (Ryerson University), and Filippo Lodi (UNStudio)
Moderator: Michiel de Lange (Utrecht University)
