How do we focus emerging technologies to create livable, equitable and sustainable cities? How are designers, technologists, and urban planners re-imagining cities of the future to be more personalized, automated and data-driven? Come join the Seattle Architecture Foundation for a discussion around the future of cities and Seattle’s position at the forefront of balancing technology, data, and social values in the public realm.

This discussion is part of AIA Seattle’s exhibition, Balancing Act: Urbanism & Emerging Technologies. Designed and curated by Boston-based design firm CBT for AIA Boston, the exhibition explores how technology influences our urban experience and how the possibilities to focus emerging technologies towards the human experience can develop best urban practices.

Moderator: Sheryl Cababa, VP of Strategy at Substantial
