Surface Intelligence Symposium Announcement

Wednesday, November 16th, 2005

I wanted to announce this symposium at the AA that I’ve been organizing with Brett and Tom B - it’ll be a great event. It’s an open event - no tickets required - so please join us.

SURFACE INTELLIGENCE:
AMBIENT & AUGMENTED ARCHITECTURES

A Two-Day International Design Symposium at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London 24 & 25 November 2005

A defining feature of the contemporary city is the prevailing role of surface technologies in the design, form, construction, and performance of architectural spaces and their structures. A growing number of media and information networks are combining with increasingly-interconnected communication technologies and distributed design systems to create the conditions for entirely new kinds of intelligent, augmented, built environments. Today’s proliferation of new network-based technologies is blurring the boundaries between architectural hardware and software; between architectural surfaces and an ambient world of information and exchange.

‘Surface Intelligence’ is a two-day international symposium at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, hosted by the Ambient and Augmented Environments Network supported by the EPSRC Culture Fund. Organised by Professor Tom Barker at the RCA and Brett Steele, Director of the Architectural Association, the two days will feature presentations and discussions by architects, engineers, interaction and media artists whose work is exploring the limits of today’s surface intelligence, and their underlying technologies, networks, and consequences.
