We're joining forces with the V&A Museum
In celebration of the landmark exhibition, The Future Starts Here, Propela is delighted to announce a four-part event series collaboration with the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Unfolding throughout 2018, the series will explore how creativity will affect four epic themes from a breadth of perspectives - near, far and speculative.
V&A Future Series: Cities
Friday 20th July 2018
6.30pm - 8.30pm
The second session in the series will focus on life in the city and how creativity will shape it. Will it look more like Minority Report or Mary Poppins? Will technology take over or is a human-centred mutiny necessary?
In this panel discussion the speakers will explore how they propose to re-design humanity through their visions of how humans, buildings and technology should intersect in the future.
Join these three extraordinary visionaries for the debate:
Simone Ferracina, whose knife’s edge architectural practice sees the city as metabolic organism;
Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, a world leading expert in the Internet-of-Things;
Indy Johar, serial ‘co’-entrepreneur, architect and advisor to Mayor Sadiq Khan on the future of London.
About the Exhibition:
The Future Starts Here exhibition will display emerging technologies, the ways in which they will affect our lives in the near future, and what choices we have – as citizens – to influence their development. The world of tomorrow is shaped by the designs and technologies emerging today. From smart appliances to satellites, this exhibition brings together more than 100 objects either newly released or in development that point towards where society might be headed. Although some may seem straight out of science fiction, they are all real, produced by research labs, universities, designers' studios, governments and corporations.
