iv. Tech is preparing for disruption of the real world

 

Digital technology continues to completely disrupt industries. The areas of architecture and the built / rural environments have remained relativity untouched. This is due to end.

“Imagine a city where graffiti wasn’t illegal, a city where everybody could draw whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. A city that felt like a party where everyone was invited, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall – it’s wet”

– Banksy, Artist
