The deployment of sensors and hand-held electronics allows new approaches to the study of the built environment. The way we understand cities is being radically transformed – alongside the tools we use to design and influence their physical structure. Carlo Ratti addresses these issues through projects by the Senseable City Laboratory, a research group at MIT that explores how new technologies change the way we understand, design and ultimately live in cities, and projects by the
design firm Carlo Ratti Associati. A reception follows the lecture.

  An architect and engineer by training, Professor Ratti teaches at MIT and directs the Senseable City Lab. He is a founding partner of the global design firm Carlo Ratti
Associati. Fast Company lists Ratti in "50 nmost influential designers in America" and he appears in Wired’s “Smart List: 50 people who will change the world.” Ratti also appears in Esquire’s “Best & Brightest” list and in Thames & Hudson’s “60: Innovators Shaping our Creative Future.” Blueprint Magazine includes Ratti in “25 People Who Change Architecture and Design.”
