The Robotic City seminar developed a Library of Robotic Speculations imagining the future of technologies and how those could change the planet and the way we inhabit our cities because we believe that technology is an important component in the future of the humanity and urban planning.

From pop culture to scientific research and applications, we have mapped the evolution and advances of robotic technologies and the place they take in our cities in order to develop a library of speculations. The library is composed of future potential scenarios – from utopian to dystopia, from near to far future, form auto-, robo-, nano- to geno-. Along with 29 students from TU Delft, we have produced a series of visions exploring what are the potentials and spatial implications of the robotic city in order to develop unique and cutting edge narratives and future urban scenarios. How they change the form of the streets, infrastructure, house, urban blocks, neighborhoods, landscapes, etc? How do the redefine built forms, leisure, mobility, public space and all other layers of the city?
