Future+, Shenzhen, China
Excited to go to Shenzhen this Friday to give a lecture at Future+ in Shenzen -the first independent academy for urbanism, landscape, & public art in China- together with Lard Buurman who’s coming over from Beijing. We’re both invited by Jason Hilgefort.
We are the first independent academy for urbanism, landscape, & public art in China. Our pedagogy emerges from the open innovation ecosystems of Shenzhen. The methodology of the PRD means designs and the city is made fast, tested and evolved. Traditional urbanism was about order; we embrace the unpredictable and the messy. This allows us to form a place for rapid response urban learning. We mine the gaps of the city to identify integral points for action. FUTURE+ is a hybrid research institute, internship, think tank, experimental laboratory.
