Don't miss the opening reception for Balancing Act: Urbanism & Emerging Technologies. This special event is an opportunity to explore the exhibition with the curators while enjoying complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres.

Today, the rapid rate of change in technology and human society has reached an unprecedented pace. As we consider the future of the urban environment, a keen understanding of the symbiotic relationship between city and technology has become imperative to not only achieve efficiency in economy and convenience, but also to provide higher quality of life through thoughtful placemaking, community-building, and design. Whether by autonomous automobiles, UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), smart buildings, or hyperloop tunnels, the urban experience is undergoing remarkable change, and there is a growing need to find the balance.

The exhibition explores the idea of this balance by posing a series of questions about how we can focus emerging technologies towards the human experience and develop best urban practices to make our cities more livable, equitable, and sustainable. Through a process of reflecting on the past, listening to contemporary perspectives, and learning the current technological forces, the exhibition speculates imaginative futures and ongoing projects and initiatives. Balancing Act: Urbanism & Emerging Technologies provides a thoughtful lens to examine the current conditions of our urban environments and the future of emerging technologies in the design and development of cities around the world.

This exhibition is on view May 17 through September 27, 2019.

Discounted parking will be available at the reception. For those who enter the 290 Congress Street Parking Garage after 5:00 pm and leave before 3:00 am will have access to $9 parking. Please validate your parking ticket at the front desk at BSA Space.
