This mini-symposium offers insights into living architectures, focusing on
ecologic systems that are programmable and capable of producing essential goods for living such as power, nutrition, clean water and air.
Experts in the fields of experimental architecture, energy design, space
systems and entrepreneurship will engage in conversation, highlighting
individual perspectives on what ecologic architecture is and what it can be in the future. The dialogue is meant to provoke concerted efforts to transform our habitats from inert spaces into programmable sites.
