The Spaces in Between

Our digital world is transforming our physical architecture and how we inhabit, think, and behave within it. The seamless integration of emerging media, interactive content, cinematic storytelling, performance and architecture can engage culture in new conversations. These smart, artful, meaningful, useful and playful spaces that could potentially change the way we think and behave. Innovations in design, culture and technology empower us to explore the spaces in between words, things, objects and thoughts.

This is a lecture that wonders about the emerging field of interactive architecture, what it is and what it could be.
