    Online Zhumu Meeting ID 626 583 5304
    Description

    Transactional Urbanism is a protraction of the flat, spiky, decentralised city, expressing the significance and influence of ubiquitous transactional exchanges on the form of the city, It presents the techno-social spatial domains that engender the city – an urban realm that is remote, dispersed yet kinetic and all-pervading.

    The lecture will examine the impact of decentralised technologies on the built environment and the consequent emergent techno-spatial architectural and urban conditions catalysed by disruptive distributed systems. Through discussing an emergent body of work, it will present the propositional forces that demonstrably shape the city; focusing on technology – its implementation and imprint – with an aim to establish a relation in the domain of architectural comprehension.
