Manchester is the venue for this year's British Council for Offices annual conference in May. One architect who is attending as a speaker will be well worth listening to:
Lars Spuybroek of NOX Design. He will be discussing how digital design 'might be used to find territory between the worlds of biology and modern technology - a form of genetic engineering, with the building conceived as a dynamic system within which there is a constant, computer-mediated interaction between users, environment, and the building itself '.
I wonder how much it will cost per square foot?
