Achilleas Psyllidis is guest lecturer at Second Nature summer school
Achilleas Psyllidis is giving a guest lecture at Second Nature summer school. He will demonstrate the potentials of Urban Informatics and Semantic (Sensor) Web technologies for advanced urban planning and decision-making processes. How does the fusion of digital and physical layers of cities allow us a better understanding of how they work? What are the state-of-the-art methods and technologies that allow this fusion of multi-modal - and rather heterogeneous - parameters? What effects do they have on the definition of a new framework for urban planning and decision-making? And how do they foster citizen participation?
The lecture will take place at A-Lab in Amsterdam (Overhoeksplein, 1031 KS, Amsterdam) on Thursday, June 12, 2014 at 15:00.
SECOND NATURE SUMMER SCHOOL
Second Nature will further examine notions of the constructed landscape and the integration of engineering systems within architecture and urban infrastructure. It will explore how new techniques involving digital fabrication, embedded sensing, and robotic actuation can be deployed in constructing hybrid structures that engage the natural environment in more responsive ways. At the same time, participants will investigate how distributed sensing and computation, big data and open systems, social media and other participatory platforms can aggregate small-scale, local interactions into larger systems exhibiting network effects at a regional scale. Emphasis will be placed on trans-natural, bio-mimetic and other post-sustainable design methods for addressing social and environmental change within urbanized regions. Second Nature: Future Grounds is initiated by Mark Shepard in collaboration with Bastiaan Kalmeyer, Antonina Simeti and Chantal Schoenmakers.
It is an international Media Architecture Summer Program based in the Netherlands and organized by the University at Buffalo - The State University of New York in collaboration with IWT.
Guest lecturers include experts from academia (MIT, Columbia University, New York University, TU Delft, Wageningen UR, Erasmus University Rotterdam), government (Municipality of Amsterdam, Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment), industry and practice (Waag Society, Smart City Amsterdam, MVRDV, Arcadis, Vizualism).
