Public Lecture, 18th February: Liam Young, Tomorrows Thoughts Today.

This weeks public lecture will be given by Liam Young a speculative architect and director who operates in the spaces between design, fiction and futures. He is co founder of Tomorrows Thoughts Today, an urban futures think tank, exploring the local and global implications of new technologies and Unknown Fields, a nomadic research studio that travels on expeditions to chronicle these emerging conditions as they occur on the ground. Described by the BBC as ‘the man designing our futures’, his visionary films and speculative worlds are both extraordinary images of tomorrow and urgent examinations of the environmental questions facing us today. His fictional work is informed by his academic research and has held guest professorships at Princeton University, MIT, and Cambridge and now runs the ground breaking Masters in Fiction and Entertainment at SCI Arc in Los Angeles.

Liam’s lecture will be on Thursday 18th Feb at the usual time of 6pm. Link to register via Zoom is below.
