Socio-Ecological Exploration of the Future Metropolis
ONE Lab Summer 2012 on Future Cities will address the emerging discipline of global urbaneering by assembling a wide range of innovators from fields as diverse as architecture, material science, urban design, biology, civil engineering and media art.
ONE Lab provides a unique opportunity for students to learn from internationally recognized scientists, renowned designers and artists. This summer approximately 40 researchers will gather in New York City for four weeks of intense creative and scientific exploration.
ONE Lab: Future Cities Summer 2012 will feature a Design Studio, Future Cities Seminars and Future Cities Workshops to rethink the possibilities for urban life in our metropolis hereafter.
Four weeks and 100 hours of intense exploration of the future of the city. Using New York as a laboratory, the studio will rethink what is salubrious about the city, in both its forms and its life. We will base our investigations on one illuminating hypothesis: in the future New York will grow to be self-sufficient in its critical necessities.
Future Cities Seminars
40 hours of TED style talks given by distinguished architects, engineers, biologists, ecologists, industrial designers, physicists and artists offering radically new responses to the real needs and aspirations of future cities.
Future Cities Workshops
In four workshops participants will learn the processes of biotechnology (including technologies such as genetic engineering, tissue culture, and cloning), growing materials, grafting trees and plants, scripting and computational modeling for controlled growth.
