Media Architecture Biennale - MAB20

Media Architecture Biennale - MAB20

The Media Architecture Biennale is the world’s premier event on media architecture, urban interaction design, and urban informatics. It brings together architects, artists and designers, leading thinkers on urban design, key industry and government representatives as well as community activists. Together, we explore the design and role of media in the built environment and its implications for urban communities and ecosystems.


This year, due to the ongoing global pandemic the Media Architecture Biennale had to be adapted and re-imagined in an online format for the first time. During the past few months, the MAB20 Organizing Committee has explored and experimented with multiple possibilities on how to best serve the worldwide MAB-Community and translate the atmosphere that we were planning to create here in Amsterdam and Utrecht to an online environment.


The MAB20 Program will take place online:

- Workshops | June 24th – 29th | via Zoom
- Online Conference | June 30th – July 2nd | via virtual conference platform

All sessions and activities (keynotes, paper sessions, symposia etc) will be held via Zoom, recorded, and made available on the platform after each session. All recordings will stay available on-demand for MAB20 attendees until August 1st. With this, we hope to enable equity of access to the content regardless of where a person is situated geographically while trying to provide convenient times as much as possible for our speakers.


By purchasing a ticket you will have access to the entire MAB20 Program – except for workshops. Workshop registrations are set up and managed by each of the workshop organizers. To check out our diverse list of workshops below, and follow the sign-up instructions described on each of the workshop’s webpage.


After finalising your ticket purchase, you will get a confirmation email. Once we are closer to the biennale, we will email you with your personal link to access the MAB20 virtual conference platform and also details about how to navigate it.


MAB20 is organized by the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and the Urban Interfaces Group at Utrecht University, in collaboration with the International Media Architecture Institute.
