Enrol now for the workshop with Liam Young

Between 29 July and 9 August, at Sinel de Cordes Palace, curator Liam Young, is leading a workshop to finalize the 40m² hyper-real scale model that constitutes one of the key elements of Future Perfect. This immersive exhibition will recreate tomorrow’s city, departing from research currently in progress, in areas such as biosciences, robotics, multimedia and 3D design. Formed by areas or “districts”, the exhibition will offer an intense sensory experience of the future urban habitat, which the visitor is welcome to walk through and explore. 
The model will be formed from extraordinarily intricate 3D printed and resin cast buildings, lighting systems, fibre optics, detailed painting and graffiti. It will be a hyper real cityscape that extends traditional architectural models into a world of fiction and popular culture. Miniature model making of this form has a long tradition in science fiction filmmaking.
This workshop is an opportunity to learn these techniques from experts in the field and to be part of Triennale's creative team. 
Liam Young is an architect who operates in the spaces between design, fiction and futures. Founder of the Tomorrows Thoughts Today think tank, a group whose work explores the possibilities of fantastic, perverse and imaginary urbanisms, he also runs the Unknown Fields Division, a nomadic workshop that holds annual expeditions to the ends of the Earth to investigate unreal and forgotten landscapes, alien terrains and industrial ecologies.
