Digital X Workshop – Public Debates

December 27, 2017

The first Norman Foster Foundation Digital X Workshop will explore the kinship of Architecture and the Digital World in a week-long event hosted in the Madrid headquarters of the Norman Foster Foundation.

What happens when the natural world and the artificial world become one and the same? How does society change when direct brain communication occurs among humans, and between humans and machines? The workshop will focus on this kinship, that of architecture and the digital world, how the two play together now, and how they will change the world together, going forward, discussing things that, outrageous today, will be commonplace tomorrow.

The Digital X Workshop includes a series of Public Debates, free and open to the public.
