Beyond Buildings: What is the role of architecture in the sharing economy?

A surge of digital services, such as AirBnb and Uber are increasingly changing the way we experience urban centres. In addition, with the rise of digital tools, services that were often carried out by governments are being relegated to private entities. Based on individualistic ‘user pays’ philosophy, such services are increasingly shifting the way our built environment is used, shaped and perceived. What is the role of architecture in this context? This talk will discuss whether and how an approach to architecture ‘beyond buildings’ can unveil a new potential for civic engagement within the context of the sharing economy.
