The theme for the Media Architecture Biennale 2020 is *Futures Implied*.
Papers should address one or more of the following issues:
- *The Aesthetics and Poetics of Responsive Urban Spaces:* How can media
architecture contribute to a sense of place, deepening citizens’
understanding of and attachments to local sites and making them more
legible, imaginative, and inclusive?
- *Citizens’ digital rights in the era of platform ecologies:* How can
media architecture articulate public values and allow citizens to govern
through digital platforms, rather than be governed by them?
- *Playful & Artistic Civic Engagement:* How can media architecture help
to enact people-centric interventions through which citizens themselves
learn, negotiate, and create innovations through play and games?
- *Restorative Cities: *How can media architecture enable societies to
regenerate socially, ecologically, and physiologically on multiple levels,
from the individual to the city as an entity of systems?
- *More-Than-Human Cities:* How can media architecture move beyond its
legacy of human-centric design, and foster and embrace the well-being of
the natural ecosystem as a whole?
