Building the Future Distinguished Lecture Series for Academics and Professionals: Senseable Cities
With Professor Carlo Ratti, Director of the Senseable City Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
Today we are at the beginning of a new technological revolution: the Internet is entering the physical space – the traditional domain of architecture and design – becoming an “Internet of Things” or IoT. As such, it is opening the door to a variety of applications that can encompass many domains: from energy to mobility, from production to citizen participation. Professor Carlo Ratti will address these issues from a critical point of view through projects by the Senseable City Laboratory and the design office Carlo Ratti Associati.
Discussion panelists include:
- Kenichi Soga (Donald H. McLaughlin Chair in Mineral Engineering and Chancellor’s Professor, University of California, Berkeley)
- Geoffrey Thün (Professor of Architecture and Senior Associate Dean for Research and Creative Practice, A. Alfred Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning).
Hosted by U-M Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) and co-sponsored by Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) and Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, this event brings together experts for a broad discussion of this forward-looking topic.
