“Education, DigitalFUTURES believes, should be a
human right, and not the privilege of the wealthy.”
DigitalFUTURES is an independent, online platform for architectural education. Its aim is to make important educational ideas available for free to architects and students across the planet, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, religion, gender, age or economic standing. Education, DigitalFUTURES believes, should be a human right, and not the privilege of the wealthy.
DigitalFUTURES is not constrained by any one language, time zone or geographic location. It does not belong to any continent or country, still less to any city or academic institution. It is intended as an open, shared platform accessible to everyone.
DigitalFUTURES operates throughout the year, offering talks and tutorials in a range of different languages. Although the primary focus is advanced technology, it also addresses other important issues, such as social equality and environmental concerns. Recordings of all sessions are uploaded to our YouTube channel, to form a permanent repository of educational materials, available for free to all.
DigitalFUTURES is run by a distributed network of volunteers from all over the world, who have come together to make the world a more equitable environment. This network operates as a non-hierarchical, bottom up organization, with each language channel operating semi-autonomously.
