Beep: Science Fiction - Built Environment Professionals Foretell Our Possible Futures, Shaped by New Technologies
Since 2015, the Built Environment Emerging Professionals (BEEP) team has been collaborating across disciplines including planning, architecture, landscape architecture, engineering, transportation, green building, and urban design to host a series of themed lightning talks. The talks feature multiple fast- paced presentations of 20 slides that automatically advance every 20 seconds. For the Urbanism Next Conference, BEEP is bringing emerging voices together to share their views of how developing technologies might reshape the future fabric of our societies. Session attendees will experience a series of fast-paced, energetic lightning talks that pose interdisciplinary questions, challenges, and opportunities around conference themes. Attendees will then engage with the presenters in a candid conversation through a moderated panel discussion and Q&A session about various possible futures and actions.
