Mark Shepard (current research)

In Fall 2014 Mark Shepard will be lecturing at the Bauhaus_Universitat, Weimar, although he will still be one of the directors of the Center for Architecture and Situated Technologies (CAST) at UB. CAST is devoted to work on the evolving and growing implications of new technologies within the built environment: social, political, ecological, and material. In March 2014 Mark Shepard’s “Beyond the Smart City: Everyday Entanglements of Technology and Urban Life”, was published in Harvard Design Magazine. The title reveals his research interests as does his media work Sentient City Survival Kit which consists of a collection of artifacts for survival in the near-future sentient city.
