Architecture Talk | Automated Landscapes: Architectures of Work without Workers

Marina Otero Verzier, Merve Bedir, Roberto Requejo Belette, De Kai, Aric Chen and Marisa Yiu

The incursion of artificial intelligence and automation into productive landscapes has come to be seen as the trigger for major shifts in labor ethos and conditions. Under the premise that automation also influences the design and occupation of the built environment, this project reflects upon the emerging architectures of automated labor in Pearl River Delta.
