What if we used direct human observation and basic design principles in urban planning, in order to try and make transport more effective and to rebuild our liveable cities?
Bruno Moser, the Head of the Urban Design Group at Foster + Partners talks about urban mobility from a designer’s view point, exploring the relationship between land use, density, and transport systems
Till explores the challenges in urban data visualisation, as well as showcases multiple projects that demonstrate current approaches to and new thinkings about urban mobility.
Architecture IO is a conference devoted to promoting innovative projects, initiatives, and ideas at the convergence of architecture, engineering, science and technology. These talks are presented by industry professionals and thinkers who are working towards solving local and global challenges. Through a series of high impact conferences and talks, Architecture IO wants to humanise architecture, promote interdisciplinary discussions, and make knowledge accessible to everyone.
The coming Architecture IO conference “Hacking Architecture” will focus on the development of innovative computational tools, design processes, and how to apply these in creative, socially meaningful responses to challenging design problems.
Some of the areas we will cover include building information modeling, CAD/CAM technologies, generative and parametric design, design technology and real world design problems, digital fabrication and new materials, software and hardware development of advanced tools, the internet of things, visualisation technologies, rapid prototyping, and more.

Using Crowd Modelling and Real-Time Analytics to Manage Our Increasingly Crowded Cities
Dr. Johansson looks at how observations and analysis of empirical crowd behaviour can be used to formulate a theory of crowd behaviour, which will identify important links from the micro to the macro scale.
