The advancement of contemporary technology is changing the way we study the world around us. The way we describe and understand cities is being radically transformed, along with the tools we use to envision and impact their physical form. In addition, these new technologies allow us to understand the built environment differently. The city is no longer a static collection of built objects, but can instead be understood as a series of social, environmental, and technological networks. Can this new knowledge positively impact the city of the future? Can these technologies allow us to rectify the mistakes of the past? What new possibilities exist within the creative use of these technologies? The MIT Club of New York invites you to join us for a conversation on the future of cities and design with Carlo Ratti, Director of the SENSEable City Lab and artist and engineer Natalie Jeremijenko, Associate Professor at NYU. This will be a uniquely creative and intellectual evening.
