It is 2019, and Digital Reality is having a major impact on space and architecture. For the Space and Digital Reality Conference, we’ve asked the participants to research, imagine and speculate about the future of architectural creation, urban development as well as design education. Both Modernist and Postmodernist paradigms have fallen; what will the next paradigms be like, and how will they impact and influence architecture and the space around us?
