Amidst the global pandemic and the inevitable climate emergency, it is the perfect moment to radically redefine how we perceive, conceive and construct our urban environment.
The Internet of Buildings studio, part of IAAC’s MaCT course, combines computational urban design, data analytics, integrated simulation and interactive interfaces to understand and propose solutions for the future challenges of our cities.
The studio attempts a holistic analysis for Barcelona’s Poblenou district, working in as a transdisciplinary team.
The research is organised in discrete but interconnected clusters which address key future challenges that inform this collective interface.
The five research clusters follow a multi-layered, multi-scalar and inter-temporal methodology. Our aim is to understand the current, imminent and future challenges of the city from the building to the urban scale.
This platform has been developed through the collaboration and hard work of everyone involved in the Internet of Buildings Studio, including the MaCT students, the IAAC faculty, the Decode Creative team as well as the reviewers and lecturers whose feedback has shaped this research. We thank each and everyone deeply for their painstaking effort!
