[ARCHI-INTERFACE] Future Cities: Open Laboratory

Admission: Free with registration via http://peatix.com/event/302436


The open house will bring participants on a journey to the 'future city' through several research themes developed at the Future Cities Laboratory. Through a series of presentations, demonstrations and discussions, participants will learn about how innovative approaches can shape future cities and improve the life of their citizens.


Future Cities Laboratory - Introduction and Context on Future City Research
Jonathan Denis-Jacob is the research manager of the Future Cities Laboratory. He is a registered urban planner, real estate analyst and urban economist with experience in academia, the public sector and the consulting industry in Canada, Mexico, the UK and Singapore. Before joining FCL, Jonathan was an urban planner at the City of Vancouver, Canada where he managed the rezoning process for major downtown real estate development projects.

Alternative Construction Materials
Alireza Javadian is a senior researcher at the Chair of Architecture and Construction at the Future Cities Laboratory. His PhD research focuses on alternative composite fibre materials as reinforcement systems in concrete applications. He recently won the SMART Innovation Grant Singapore, the Sawiris Scholarship Grant of ETH Zürich, a Swiss KTI project fund, and an Zumtobel Group Award together with the bamboo research team in Singapore and Zürich.

Grands Projets
Naomi Hanakata is a Senior Research and Project Coordinator at FCL of The Grand Projet and Thinking Urban Futures projects. She is trained as an architect and urban planner at the ETH Zürich and the University of Tokyo. Her doctoral research in urban geography and theory studied contemporary urbanisation processes, with a focus on the Tokyo Metropolitan Region. She has worked on various scales as an architect, planner and consultant in Zürich, Tokyo, New York and Singapore.

Anna Gasco is a Senior Researcher and Project Coordinator of The Grand Project. Chartered Part III architect in the UK and urban designer, she previously worked in architecture and urban planning practices for over seven years on visionary urban projects. In 2011 she joined FCL to complete her PhD on the urbanising effects of hub airports. She is trained as an architect and urban designer at the ETH Zürich, the Bartlett UCL London and St Luc Brussels.

Cognition, Perception and Behaviour in Urban Environments
Panos Mavros is a postdoctoral researcher at FCL, where he is working on the project Cognition, Perception and Behaviour in Urban Environments. He studied Architecture at the National Technical University of Athens, Greece and Digital Media at the University of Edinburgh, UK. Panos's research studies the behaviour of people in the built environment, and its implications on the design or simulation of environments.

Dense and Green Building Typologies
Michelle Yingying Jiang is trained as an architect and holds a PhD degree in Architectural Design and Theory from the University of Hong Kong. As an architect, she worked on architectural design projects in China. In 2013, she joined FCL as a postdoc researcher. She is now the project coordinator for the Dense and Green Building Typologies project, investigating the interrelations between human behaviours, thermal comfort and greenery spaces in Singapore.

Urban-Rural Systems
David Neudecker obtained his Master of Art in Design and Multimedia at the Tomas Bata University in Zlin where he specialised in urban design and interactive visualisations. After graduation, he joined the Architecture Office Coop Himmelb(l)au in Vienna where he worked on multiple urban design studies. He joined FCL as an Interface designer in 2015. Currently, he is leading the development of the urscape platform as part of the Urban-Rural Systems project team.

Michael Joos is a software engineer specializing in real-time 3D applications. During his internship at SIEMENS' Corporate Technology R&D department in Munich he first started developing 3D interactive applications and later took on the role of software engineer in the video game industry for nearly 10 years. He has also taught computer science courses at the DigiPen Institute of Technology, and worked for a social media company as a full stack engineer.
