Best-known as a pioneer of the cyberpunk fiction movement, sci-fi writer Bruce Sterling explores the native architecture of the mid-21st century as being post-digital, post-Internet, and post-human. “The Anthropocene couldn’t be more obvious in 2050: they’re old people, in big cities, afraid of the sky. But what excites them about their own built environment? What do they themselves look forward to, thirty years from now? Why do they hop out of their intelligent beds in the morning, trembling with excitement about architecture?” Sterling, whose recent books are “The Epic Struggle of the Internet of Things” and “Utopia Pirata: I Racconti di Bruno Argento,” delivers his talk at SCI-Arc.
