Virtual / London / Hatfield, UK
Organization: University of Hertfordshire / AMPS
Through digital technology and computation our cities are sites of data. They are also places designed and built through data based architecture, planning and construction. The ‘digital city’ and ‘smart buildings’ are not just consequences, they are also ideas for the creative imagination of filmmakers and digital artists who see this new world with awe and dread.
Concerns include the amount of data our cities generate for third parties; the dangers of ‘digital dependency’ for future generations; and the unemployment that could result from digital building construction, to name a few.
This conference explores this complex set of interrelated issues.
This conference is planned as a hybrid in-person and virtual event. If necessary it will be moved to a fully virtual format. The keynote will be held in London. In-person presentations will take place in the University of Hertfordshire campus in Hatfield on the outskirts of London.
