Open Lecture Series: Liam Young

Liam Young is an architect who operates in the spaces between design, fiction and futures. He is founder of the think tank Tomorrows Thoughts Today, a group who explore the possibilities of fantastic, speculative and imaginary urbanisms and co runs the ‘Unknown Fields Division’, a nomadic studio that travels on expeditions behind the scenes of the modern city. He tells stories about the city using fiction, film and performance as imaginative tools to explore the implications and consequences of emerging technologies and ecological conditions. Young now manages his time between exploring distant landscapes and prototyping the future worlds he extrapolates from them.
