As part of the Festival of Architecture, ArchitectureNow in association with Atelier Aitken, Monmouth Glass Studio, OML and Architecture and Civil Engineering Association (ACE) presents a technology-focused exhibition in Silo 6, Wynyard Quarter.
Take a look at examples of future-focused architecture and design that incorporate the latest developments in biotechnology, smart technologies and alternative reality technologies, such as augmented and virtual reality.
Bio-design harnesses living materials, letting nature, the best among all engineers and architects, run its course. Together, biotechnology and smart technologies offer possibilities that allow humans to both reverse the damage caused by the fossil-fueled industrial revolution and live healthier and more self sufficient lives.
