Winy Maas and The Why Factory to Kick-off MaCT Robotic City Seminar

From May 15th to June 8th, Master in City & Technology (MaCT) students will join the Robotic City Seminar, which will be ran by The Why Factory (T?F) at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia.

What are the implications of the robotization on the build environment? From smart cities to biotechnologies, students will map the evolution and advances of robotic technologies, getting an overview of the current and future technological innovations.

This quarterly seminar will be structured on the scenario-based methodology of The Why Factory, the think-tank led by MVRDV co-founding director Winy Maas, which explores the possibilities for the future development of our cities, focusing on the production of models and visualizations.

During the seminar, students will develop a collective movie exploring the transformation process of a street and the impacts of robotic technologies on the build environment and the way we inhabit our cities.

The Master in City & Technology focusses on the needs for the habitability of the 21st century cities and the significant role of technology for the formation of the new urban environments. 

IAAC proposes this new Master program oriented in training Change Makers that City Government Administrations, the Industry and Communities need in order to develop projects for the transformation of the cities.
