At the Media Architecture Biennale in 2014 we explore the emergence of new
kinds of “ World Cities” through media architecture. In this context,
encounters may occur when media architecture is realized and people
experience and interact with it, e.g. when public spaces and urban
environments and the practices they shape are influenced by elements of
media architecture; it may also occur as new platforms give rise to new
opportunities for shaping systems and surroundings.


We consider media architecture as an inclusive term that
encompasses encounters and intersections between digital technologies and
our physical surroundings. We invite papers that present
and discuss novel contributions to media architecture both on a practical
and theoretical level and that further our understanding of the field
through case studies, design approaches, and best practices.
We expect contributions to critically explore a wide range of
topics including, but not limited to:

- How to support the development of social structures with urban digital
- Social and Cultural Aspects of Media Architecture
- Participatory Architecture & City Planning
- Spatial Locative Media
- Case Studies of Specific Projects
- Future Trends and Prototypes
- Media Facades and Urban Displays
- Interaction Techniques and Interfaces- Critical and Historical
Perspectives on Media Architecture
- Design Processes and Methods

The conference invites research presentations from both academia and

* We invite both short and long papers. Submitted papers should be a
maximum of four and ten pages in length, for short and long papers
respectively, in ACM format (

* The papers should clearly explain the research question addressed,
research methods and tasks, findings or results, and contributions of the
work. Papers should also provide sufficient background and related work to
situate and contextualize the authors’ work within the greater body of

* Submissions should consist of original work not previously published or
concurrently under consideration for any other conference, workshop,
journal, or other publication with an ISBN, ISSN or DOI number.

*Authors must provide a 30-word contribution statement for their paper upon
submission. The contribution statement should explain the contribution made
by the paper to the Media Architecture community.

*Papers will be peer-reviewed by multiple members of a program

committee consisting of experts in a range of disciplines that shape media


Building on the successful event in Aarhus 2012, Media Architecture

Biennale 2014 brings together artists, practitioners and researchers from
academia and industry who work with media, interactive technologies and the
built environment. The 2014 Biennale comprises an academic conference
track, exhibitions, and industry sessions, as well workshops. Our vision is
to provide an excellent forum for debate and knowledge exchange; to of fer
a unique opportunity that brings together the best minds and organizations;
and to highlight state-of-the-art and experimental research in media

*THEME: Media Architecture and Cities of the World*
Media architecture is an increasingly important digital layer in cities all
over the world. It is a part of shopping malls, casinos, digital signs and
commercials and it holds great potential as a mouthpiece for public voice
and a peephole into the heart of government. The latter was exemplified
when citizen reports and the municipality's case handlings were visualized
on Aarhus' notable city hall tower during the Media
Architecture Biennale 2012. It is also the case, when people in the streets
of Berlin are  invited to show their own animations using 144 lit-up
windows in a central high-rise building, which happened in the iconic
project Blinkenlights.

No matter if it is in Aarhus, Copenhagen or Berlin – or in São Paulo,
Sydney or Beijing – media architecture augments public space and creates
new settings for life in the city. These new settings will be the focus of
the Media Architecture Biennale 2014.

The design of media architecture invites encounters between people, the
built environment, and media space. It opens up rich opportunities for new
forms of participation through dialogue and engagement. As an emerging
field, diverse perspectives are coming together in media architecture, and
the challenges are as abundant as the opportunities.
