Please join the UC San Diego Department of Visual Arts and the Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination for a special talk with Liam Young, Tuesday, April 21, at 12:30-2:00pm in Center Hall 109.

Liam Young is an architect who operates in the spaces between design, fiction and futures. He is a founder of the think tank Tomorrows Thoughts Today, a group whose work explores the possibilities of fantastic, speculative and imaginary urbanisms. He also co runs the ‘Unknown Fields Division’, a nomadic studio that travels on annual expeditions to the ends of the earth to investigate unreal and forgotten landscapes, alien terrains and industrial ecologies. Liam’s projects develop fictional speculations as critical instruments to survey the consequences of emerging environmental and technological futures.
