Sense and the City: Smart, Connected and on the Move
NASA Ames Research Center
Toroidal Colnies, 1975

An exhibition about the ways in which emerging technologies are changing the way we access and experience London. Comparing contemporary experiences of the capital with past visions of the future, the show looks at GPS, electric vehicles, internet access, smart phones and other recent advances in data and communication technologies, presenting these alongside works from the past by architects Le Corbusier, Archigram and others who imagined what the twenty-first-century city might look like. Displays include fanciful ideas for future living – a spiral escalator, winged buses and taxi airships – as well as an interactive video display that enables visitors to view animations, data visualisations and other images on subjects ranging from the cash-less society to driver-less cars. The 'Visions of Tomorrow Wall' features work by young designers from the Royal College of Art. A programme of talks and events accompanies the exhibition.

unhappy dad

Don't do it especially if you have small children. My son was forced to wet himself as they wouldn't let him use a toilet before we had a ticket, yep they wanted my fatherinlaw to wait in the queue. even the chance to rush my 3 year old to the cafe toilet was blocked by a very aggressive security guard. very unfriendly and overpriced.
