Media Architecture Biennale 2016: Digital Placemaking

Outstanding examples of media architecture; creative ways of changing public space through light and technology; new directions for smart cities - this is all on the agenda, when the world’s premier media architecture event takes place in June 2016 in Sydney.

The fifth International Media Architecture Biennale (MAB16) will be hosted at The Concourse in Chatswood. The event brings together architects, designers, artists, academia, councils and industry to discuss the opportunities of media architecture for placemaking and smart city futures. It is a unique professional development and networking opportunity to learn about media architecture and digital placemaking and to meet like-minded people and industry.

Featuring a two-day conference, symposia, workshops and an award ceremony, MAB16 provides a forum for exchanging ideas and outlining the media architecture of the future – from media facades to projection mapping, urban screens to localised media interventions in cities.

The conference will include international keynote speakers from leading architects, designers, artists and academics. The symposia will explore the role of urban screens and smart city initiatives for digital placemaking through invited talks from industry experts and international scholars. The workshops will provide opportunities to learn from experts about specific topics. The highlight of the event will be the gala dinner and the Media Architecture Award ceremony, in which outstanding media architecture projects will be presented and awarded.
