NatureTecture

Recent developments such as Internet of Things, Big Data, and Machine Intelligence have ambition and the potential to algorithmically manage life, including urban nature. These developments in technology and media are supporting the development of a new hybrid architecture where Architecture and Nature fuse: NatureTecture!

This bringing together of Smart Landscape and Smart City, this merging of Internet of Things with green urban infrastructures creates conscious architectures. In a series of such Smart Urban Landscape projects Hybrid Space Lab demonstrates paths for transdisciplinary design that addresses the interconnected challenges of today, across the issues of environment and climate change, ongoing urbanization and food security, digitization and accelerating technological developments.

Networked Urbanism

Today, the communicational paradigm, with its “network-cities”, “nodes” and “terminal architectures” is infiltrating and transforming the architectural/urban discourse and practice. Within this framework, ‘idensity®’ is proposed as a conceptual tool for developing space in the information/communication age. This composite term consists of the combination/fusion of the word “density” of real/urban and “virtual”/media communication spaces (density of connections) and of the word “identity”.
