Beyond mere decoration, civic spectacle and city branding, media architecture shapes our collective identity through digital place-making, 24-hour architecture, and reanimating public space

The Media Architecture Summit 2016 explores the role of urban screens, interactive media façades, and large-scale public projections in architecture, public art, civic engagement and urban renewal.

Held for the first time in North America, MAS 2016 brings together an international group of artists, designers, architects, scholars, and representatives from the cultural sector and industry, presenting a wide range of projects including context-aware illuminated spaces, architectural projection, animated building facades, and interactive installations inviting spontaneous public performance.

MAS 2016 opens with an evening keynote by internationally acclaimed media artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and continues with a day of featured talks and panel discussions, followed by an evening social hosted at InterAccess. The final day of the summit comprises a morning panel at the University of Toronto and afternoon workshops and industry sessions held at OCADU.
