Additional information

This Summer, we’ll examine a range of future-forward topics. We’ll explore prosthetics that extend our biological capacities, virtual reality to create alternate future narratives, responsive environments using new technologies that allow spaces to adapt to changing environmental and use conditions, socially-minded robots whose behaviors feel more humanoid rather than artificial, fashion that serves a larger purpose, and even devices that can be created for life beyond earth in outer space.
