MediaArchitecture, Urban Context and Social Practices

3rd international conference on the interaction of architecture, media and social phenomena

Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Germany, 29 to 31 October 2010


The 3rd MediaCity conference will investigate how new media re-define social settings and urban spaces
and how they influence architecture as well as media art & design in urban contexts, thus constituting new
social and cultural practices.
Today, media create opportunities for diverse forms of connections between people and spaces, enabling
and forming flows of information. New digital places for information and communication emerge, and the
context of existing spaces is transformed by the joint impact of media and architecture, thus leading to
new forms of social and cultural practices. The public sphere, the communication in ubiquitous networks,
and the interaction with digital content will be a thematic focus. The conference addresses different
approaches and methods of research. It will consist of three sessions and a workshop, exploring these
themes in a focused way.

Deadline for submissions: 15 June 2010
