Cyber-physical architect, artist, and founder of Ozel Office, Güvenç Özel joins the podcast to discuss the impacts of technology on the future of the profession, how architecture is perceived through mixed media, and the design process for his installation, Holoflux, at this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
"We need to look at non-material ways of building, of constructing realities, and of creating civic spaces—social environments for ourselves that aren’t so reliant on planetary resources or the manipulation of physical materials, but still evocative to our senses. We are at a moment where the technologies we are using to communicate are two-dimensional; they’re not architectural enough, not spatial enough. I see the role of the designer and architect as the new champion to headline that transformation."
