TEDx: Designing for the Internet of Things / Rodolphe el‐Khoury

Filmed at TEDxToronto in September 2013, this talk by architect, educator and theorist Rodolphe el‐Khoury is based on the inevitable “internet of things.” As TEDxToronto described, “More than ever before, the line between the digital and real worlds is increasingly blurred. Historically, computers and devices have functioned as a separate layer within our lives... In this world, our homes, workplaces, and the objects within them will all be digitally connected, intelligent, and responsive.” It is only a matter of time.

About the Speaker, via TEDx:

Rodolphe el‐Khoury is Director of Urban Design at the University of Toronto's Daniels Faculty and Partner in the design firm Khoury Levit Fong. el-Khoury is the author of critically acclaimed books in architectural history and theory and has received international recognition for his design work including awards form the American Institute of Architects. As co-director of RAD Lab, el-Khoury researches architectural applications for information technology aiming for enhanced responsiveness and sustainability in buildings and cities.
