This panel discussion explores various facets of media architecture, from theoretical and conceptual urban planning and design challenges to visions of the future cityscape.
Media architecture transforms urban spaces by seamlessly embedding digital media into the built environment. It uses new, responsive technologies such as the internet of things, big data and other spatial sensing techniques to transform the urban landscape through the imaginative use of digital screens, interactive media facades and large-scale public projections. A “responsive city” embeds increasingly sophisticated data gathering elements into the urban environment. In this conversation we will hear from experts in the field who are creating the most complex responsive projects across the globe.
The panel will explore responsive media projects like the Corridor Portal at the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX airpot, the Light Frieze of the Kunstmuseum Basel by iart and Christ & Gantenbein, Ai Weiwei / Herzog + de Meuron collaboration, Hansel & Gretel at the Armory, Iconic Digital Marquee on the Las Vegas Strip and the Jacques-Cartier Bridge Interactive Illumination in Montreal.
