Urban shrinkage as a chance for the cityscape?
Soft Urbanism is a new interdisciplinary field of design and planning.
International Architecture Biennial Rotterdam event is held every two years in the Dutch port city of Rotterdam, itself recognized worldwide as an architectural trendsetter.
The International Architecture Biennial focuses 2003 entirely on the theme of ‘mobility’, examining the issue of modern-day mobility and the consequences for architecture and urban development. Architects, civil engineers, urban planners, traffic experts, landscape architects, students, filmmakers and photographers from around the world will spend two months presenting plans and exchanging ideas in the form of exhibitions, lectures, publications, debates, films and excursions.
Today, the communicational paradigm, with its “network-cities” and “nodes”, “terminal architectures” and “urban branding strategies” is infiltrating and transforming the architectural/urban discourse and practice.
Lecture on Hybrid City” at the University of Sheffield School of Architecture is part of the SHarc + SUAS Guest Lecture Series 2013-14.

NatureTecture proposes how Internet of Things will merge with green structures in the city.
With the Internet of Things, Big Data and Machine Intelligence algorithmically organizing life, society, work and industry, the only question that remains is what will happen with nature. The accelerating developments in nature, bio-technology, technology and architecture are creating a new hybrid architecture.
Lectures, Discussion, 14.00-18.00, 9 April 2017, V2 Institute for Unstable Media, Rotterdam
Subject to the exponential technological acceleration, challenged by alarming ecologic and social changes design’s role in shaping our increasingly hybrid world is changing.
Elizabeth Sikiaridi and Frans Vogelaar lecture on June 7th 2013 at DMY International Design Festival / Berlin Design Week 2013.
Architecture in the information age
The world is changing and with it the cities. The new possibilities of physical mobility in the industrial age have decisively influenced architecture and city planning. The question now arises as to how much the present revolution of information and communication will have.
GeoCity Smart City is the feature exhibition for Beijing Design Week 2013. Curated by CMoDA (China Millennium Monument Museum of Digital Arts), the exhibition augments and maps information design and application cases for smart cities initiatives around the world, and to use it as input for Smart Beijing case development.
The international program on “(re-) Designing Affect Space” is an extended design, practice, and theory project. It consists of a series of master classes with public interventions, of international conferences and of pop-up exhibitions.

Scenarios for an interplay of the urban space and the media domain. New interdisciplinary fields of planning and design are introduced: Soft Urbanism, exploring the interaction of urbanism and the space of mass media and communication networks, and Hybrid Space Design, developing fused analog-digital / architectural-media spaces. Within this framework, “Idensity®” is proposed as a conceptual tool for developing space in the information-communication age.
Electronic and digital systems generate completely new forms of migration. In the creative arts, new phenomena related to migration and the synergies of disparate systems are emerging. Artistic products evolve from traditional forms into hybrid digital forms. Analog products are being digitized; data spaces are trans-located from one data storage system to another; existing sounds, images, and texts are remixed and fused into new datasets.
Can the mutable conditions of today’s China become the basis for radical development of architecture and urban planning disciplines?
NatureTecture explores the fusion of architecture, media and nature.
