The future of drones and our cities

Dezeen's Marcus Fairs in conversation with Liam Young



Join us for the first UK screening of Dezeen's 2018 film 'Elevation – how drones will change cities.'

Released June 2018 in New York, the film explores the way drones will transform how we design, build and navigate our cities. The screening will be followed by a conversation led by co-director and founder of Dezeen Marcus Fairs with futurist architect and film director Liam Young

Liam's 'In the Robot Skies' is the first fiction film to be entirely filmed by autonomous drones and is featured in 'Elevation', along with interviews from Norman Foster, Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Marina Otero Verzier and many more.

The pair will discuss the impact of drones and emerging technologies on the way we will build and experience our future urban environments. The event will conclude with an audience Q&A at 8.30pm. 

The event will begin at 6.30pm with registration starting at 6.00pm.
