space&matter @ MediaCity conference

This weekend the 3rd MediaCity conference takes place at the Bauhaus University in Weimar. The conference will investigate how new media re-defines social settings and urban spaces and how they influence architecture as well as media art & design in urban contexts, thus constituting new social and cultural practices. On sunday, Marthijn Pool presents his published C@rchitecture project 'the architecture-infrastructure synergy'. This project shows how socio-psychological aspects of infrastructure can be beneficial to architecture and the experience of the city. With a digital design tool he integrates the collaboration of multiple disciplines and optimizes the design process.
