RMIT Architecture Talk - #1: The City is a Chatroom

Are cities simulating the virtual space of our social media?

What is the role of physical space for our interactions when most of them are virtual?

Join us for the first in a series of informal discussions.

Associate Professor Graham Crist will discuss the value of innovative design and the urban experience, and will also talk about the New Academic Street project at RMIT - a recent example of design driven by informal meetings, fun and chat, and networked conversation.

Here in Ho Chi Minh City, it provokes us to think about the informal encounters that build design culture, and valuing the intimate spaces - things that the people of our city already do so well.

We look forward to meeting you.

Free entry - complimentary light refreshments will be provided.
