Experiments, Prototypes, Utopias
Jason Kelly Johnson, Future Cities Lab
Jason Kelly Johnson’s Future Cities Lab is at the forefront of exploring how advanced technologies, robotics, social media and the internet of things will profoundly transform how we live, work, communicate, interact and play in the future. As a part of the lab’s core research agenda they synthesize past, present and future trajectories into radically synthetic forms of architectural production, interaction and participation.
Jason Kelly Johnson is founding design Principal of Future Cities Lab in San Francisco. He is currently an Associate Professor at the California College of the Arts (CCA) and Co-Director of CCA’s Digital Craft Lab.
On July 7th, 2015, it was our pleasure to have Matias del Campo, Associate Professor of Architecture at the Taubman College School of Architecture, University of Michigan, to present his lecture entitled “Moody Objects.”
Matias del Campo explores in his lecture “Moody Objects” the lineages of ontographic qualities in recent computational design techniques. It brokers between the quality of permutations of objects as design trajectory, and the nonphysical entities that constitute primary realities between sensual (moody) and real objects.
On June 8, 2015, we had the pleasure of inviting Hernan Diaz Alonso, the next director of SCI-Arc, to present his lecture entitled “Shaken not Stirred.”
