The Media Architecture Biennale 2020 (MAB20) invited students to send in their projects for the MAB Student Awards. We especially encouraged submissions that addressed the MAB20’s theme of ‘Futures Implied’ and demonstrated the implications of media technologies for urban development, the design of our public spaces, and the well-being of the ecosystem at large.
We received over 100 submissions from all over the world and we are truly impressed by the quality of the submissions – making a decision was not an easy task for the jury members. Winners will be announced during the MAB Student Awards ceremony, which will be livestreamed during the MAB20 on July 1st, 15:30-16:30 CEST. A selection of projects is also presented in an online exhibition displayed on the MAB Student Awards website.

Category: Aesthetics and poetics of responsive urban spaces
