Factory Futures Broadcast
Tommaso Franzolini (Architectural Association)

The aim of this project is to raise new forms of awareness on the spatial implications of a data-driven economy by bringing together voices from diverse disciplinary fields around a series of common questions concerning the social values of a European industrial culture, current trends in construction technologies and the factory as a topos.
Insisting on the relevance of the Olivettian project to shape a strong industrial culture in which production and representation are strategically aligned, Factory Futures Broadcast seeks to find new ties between today’s increasingly disjoined practices. Operating via a series of short interviews, the programme aims to bring design professionals, theorists, operators and investors in urban infrastructure and production on a shared public platform.
