“Media Architecture is a perfect example of what is happening with the digitization of our societies in general”, says Martin Brynskov, General Chair of the Media Architecture Biennale 2012 and 2014.
According to him communication and information technologies were optional, and most of the people still had the possibility to opt-out of using them. With the increasing deployment of technologies in the city -as for example media facades- this option is waning and life in the cities is becoming more and more digital.
Such development still needs to be understood with a mix of competences that take into account the architectural aspects as well as the technological challenges related to it. “Media architecture is this wonderful and scary mix of traditional architecture competences, skills and problems – and something completely different.”
