Rice Seminar Public Lecture: "SENSEable CITIES" by Carlo Ratti

Thursday, November 3, 2016

The increasing deployment of sensors and hand-held electronics in recent years is allowing a new approach to the study of the built environment. The way we describe and understand cities is being radically transformed - alongside the tools we use to design them and impact on their physical structure. The contribution from Prof. Carlo Ratti will address these issues from a critical point of view through projects by the Senseable City Laboratory, a research initiative at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the design office Carlo Ratti Associati.

This is part of the 2016-17 Rice Seminar Lecture Series.
