Speakers + talks

MAB12 features talks by some of the World’s leading experts and creatives within the field of media architecture.

Keynote speakers and invited speakers have been selected and invited due to their impressive track record within the field of media architecture or because we think they would provide interesting perspectives on the media architecture field. Read more about the speakers by browsing the gallery below.

For the first time in the history of MAB, the biennale also features an academic conference (see call for papers), in collaboration with ACM. With 12 talks, the conference is based on rigorously peer-reviewed academic papers grouped thematically in four sessions: Theory, Lessons For Design, Hybrid Environments, Case Studies.

Read more about the individual conference papers below, and in this overview of the four paper sessions.
