Talk: URBAN DESIGN FICTION HACKATHON at the Onassis Cultural Centre, May 16 – May 17 2015, Athens (GR)

Here is an excerpt from the event description:

“In the post-digital era our relation with the urban landscape is ever-changing due to the fast pace technologic advancements and the blurring between the physical and the digital realm. State of the art technologies like augmented reality, physical computing, the Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable technology redefine the levels of interaction between ourselves and our surroundings. In this context, what kind of narratives could occur from the creation of objects? How would we imagine the future city and the collaborative networks of production?

The Urban Design Fiction Hackathon event that will take place at the Onassis Cultural Centre and will form part of the Adhocracy exhibition, is a 36-hours design marathon that aims to engage the public to collaborate in the creation of local urban knowledge networks using open-source software and hardware technologies, through “Do-It-Yourself” (DIY) and “Do-It-With-Others” (DIWO) methodologies.

The Urban Design Fiction Hackathon will take place from Saturday 16th May 10:00 AM until Sunday 17th May 10:00 PM. at the Onassis Cultural Centre inside the Adhocracy exhibition space.

The project presentation and an open public discussion with the mentors on the Hackathon’s outcome will take place on Monday 17th May at 7:00 PM.”
