4th May 2015 Tutorials

Hello everyone, here are couple pictures from our last tutorial showing some of the best future cities that our students are currently working on in response to the Brief03:FutureCities.

From an open-source green city living in symbiosis with the Amazonian forest to a terra-forming city on Mars made from 3d printing robots carrying giant Fresnel lenses all the way to a rent-for-advertisement growing infrastructure covered with LED screens – we are look forward to discovering with you the cities of tomorrow from our wonderful and creative DS10 students next Thursday at the Interim Crit.
