Event Details

GRIDLOCK: A MOBILITY CHALLENGE SYMPOSIUM

Congestion – the fight for space, for land, for bandwidth, for opportunities, for resources – has become the hallmark of modern society. This is true on the freeway, on the internet, and in the competition for take-off and landing at major airports. Although various algorithms have been developed to manage these competing flows of information, people and vehicles, the pervasive overload of the systems we depend on are reaching a critical level.

GRIDLOCK: a mobility challenge symposium will generate a discourse between academic researchers and industry leaders to debate and share perspectives on how the advent of autonomous vehicles, new technologies, and other expanded modes of transportation will transform the way we live and move in urban environments.

RECEPTION 3:00 - 3:30pm

Complimentary appetizers and drinks will be served.

UCLA Architecture and Urban Design / IDEAS Campus

The Ozel Suprastudio is focused on investigating the intersection between the digital and the physical worlds, looking at the cusp of living in mixed realities where interactive environments challenge traditional fabrication techniques and spatial assemblies. Main topics of research include virtual and augmented reality, robotics, generative fabrication, cyberphysical systems and smart space applications. Studio is led by Guvenc Ozel with the assistance of Benjamin Ennemoser.

The IDEAS Lecture Series brings together speakers from a broad range of disciplines to explore a dynamic new future for architecture. Looking beyond the field's traditional boundaries, the series examines topics including entertainment, automotive, aerospace, and tech to  The series looks beyond the field's traditional boundaries, engaging industries such as entertainment, automotive, aerospace, and tech industries to explore rapidly emerging new technologies, possibilities for interdisciplinary growth, and the role of Los Angeles in the evolution of architecture.

SUPRASTUDIO is a post-professional program at UCLA Architecture and Urban Design that leads to a Masters of Architecture II degree. Students engage in real-world issues through intensive research to develop new methodologies of architectural design. The program offers extensive research opportunities in studios led by world-renowned figures in architecture. SUPRASTUDIO partners student researchers with industry collaborators exploring topics as diverse as strategic thinking, sustainability, contemporary culture, lifestyle, artificial intelligence, autonomous mobility, sensing technology, robotics, extreme environments, the journey to outer space, virtual reality, entertainment production performances, and media-enhanced experiences.
