Presentation Title:

  • Sensuous City





  • If architecture cannot respond radically to the advent of smart materials, intelligent systems,  and nanotechnology, the vision of a sensuous city to complement our post-biological condition cannot be realized. How to accommodate the technology of consciousness, house the cybernaut, service the telematic traveller, or farm artificial life? Archiculture means working from the bottom up: seeding ideas, growing structures, harvesting emergent systems in the interspace between the virtual and the real. This applies as much to our own bionic evolution as to cyburban design.
