ACADIA 2017, MIT, Boston
On behalf of UIC Researchers, at the first week of November, we were at Boston, MA for the ACADIA conference hosted at MIT. Boston's ambient for a researcher is absolutely motivating and inspiring. We had the chance to experience the high qualified knowledge exchange and networking. Was a great pleasure to attend the conference and listen all the amazing researchers around the world, and also the two favorite Keynote speeches of of the year, by Neri Oxman, Director of MIT Media Labs, and Jessica Rosenkrantz & Jesse Louis-Rosenberg Founders of Nervous Systems. Within the conference program, we were invited to visit the MIT Labs, also the greatest example of Deconstructionism; The Stata Building by famous architect Frank Gehry.
Apart from the conference program, we as the UIC team, Dra. Ana Cocho Bermejo, Dr. Diego Navarro and myself, visited the amazing Autodesk BuildSpace and also the Harvard GSD.
Without a single doubt, Boston visit was a great experience.
