PA Live 013 – Mario Carpo

Mario Carpo and Gilles Retsin discuss architecture and automation in the context of the covid-19 crisis and its aftermath. As global production chains have proven to lack resilience, local, digital manufacturing presents a compelling alternative. What does this mean for architecture? How do we as architects shape an agenda for increased automation in such a way that it benefits all? This talk explores a series of urgent questions that will deeply affect all of us in the near future.
