    Discover how digital technologies are impacting our homes, cities and environment in a series of interventions inside the RA’s new Architecture Studio

    Invisible Landscapes will make visible the often-invisible presence of digital technologies in our lives and everyday environments. The programme will look from the home to the city to review how architecture can respond and engage with emerging contemporary issues, to suggest new ways of being, belonging and living.

    Today, digital technologies are often presented as the ultimate solution for cooperating and living in a globalised world, connecting people and places, and making our landscapes and actions more efficient. However, the use of these new technologies also raises questions of privacy, security, sustainability, health and dependency, creating radical transformations within the boundaries between humans and technology. Through three interconnected acts, the Royal Academy will invite practice-based researchers to present new work that addresses the implications of digital technologies on what it means to be human.

      • Act I: Home

        19 May – 24 September 2018

        The opening act of Invisible Landscapes will explore the impact of digital technology on domestic spaces and how this may be altering the meaning of home. Through an interactive installation, Barcelona-based architecture practice MAIO will explore different architectural propositions that respond to changing social and economic structures that impact the home. They will explore the home as not simply an isolated space but part of a wider system where the boundaries between public and private, urban and domestic spheres are blurred, offering new ways to consider how we use domestic space.

      • Act II: Environment

        5 October – 3 December 2018

        Digital technologies are drastically redefining the way we communicate and interact with each other, allowing greater understanding of our surroundings and creating the potential for a hyper-connected and informed society. This is transforming individual and collective habits and actions, with radical consequences for the environment, public space and wellbeing. This act will question the physical impact of digital technology on the built environment, and address the way it is treated by public policy and institutions.

      • Act III: Imagination

        14 December 2018 – 4 March 2019

        Virtual, augmented and mixed reality are terms gaining ground in the architectural world, opening new spatial possibilities that blur the boundaries between virtual and physical, real and fictional. The potential is endless and can go as far as the imagination will allow. Act III looks at how architects embrace this in their creative process, and the role architecture might play in an augmented future.
