Smart devices can ‘change nature of architecture’

0

Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas says the world needs to enter into an open discussion about how we want smart technologies integrated into architecture.

Speaking at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit in San Francisco, he said that in the past it was the anonymity of cities that made them so appealing, and was cautious of lending un-critical support to all-pervasive smart technology.

When asked his opinion of the spaceship-shaped Apple building in Cupertino, California, Koolhaas suggested it had been built apart from the surrounding community and architecture, which people working there may not enjoy.
