MAB 2016                                                              June 1-4, 2016


At this year’s biennale, we highlight the potential of Media Architecture as a key component in placemaking; the creation of meaningful and socially thriving public spaces based on community efforts. As Media Architecture becomes a more prominent and accepted part of urban life, it opens up rich opportunities for new forms of participation through dialogue and engagement. It places a greater responsibility on designers to look beyond aspects of implementation and enter new partnerships with urban planners and residents. Through the combination of agility and responsibility, designers examine how Media Architecture can contribute to shaping places that improve the quality and experience of urban space and support creative patterns of use, with a particular attention to its physical, cultural, and social identities. We, therefore, invite interested parties from a variety of backgrounds – be it human-computer interaction, urban design and planning, engineering, arts, humanities, sociology, and more – to participate in joint discussions about how Media Architecture can best contribute to placemaking.

MAB 2016 will be held in the beautiful city of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia.

There are three reasons to visit Australia in 2016 with MAB being held back to back with the Vivid Light, Music & Ideas Festival 2016 (<>) and the Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) from 4-8 June 2016 (

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:

·      Participatory Architecture & City Planning

·      Social & Cultural Aspects of Media Architecture

·      Spatial Locative Media & Sensory Environments

·      Media Facades & Urban Displays and Future Trends

·      Interaction Techniques & Interfaces

·      Critical & Historical Perspectives on Media Architecture

·      Design Tools, Processes & Methods

·      Case Studies

Further instructions on how to prepare and submit your papers are available on the conference website and in the extended call:
