16:30 – 18:30 Guests speakers

Netscape – Ronald Wall (Rotterdam) Architect turned economist, using computational models to measure economic competitiveness between cities and how this influences urban development. See appendix A for CV/Bio
Urbagram – Anil Bawa-Cavia (London) Computer scientist and software developer turned urban modeler. See appendix B for CV/Bio

The idea is to have two individuals who have travelled themselves across disciplinary boundaries, functioning themselves as containers of ideas that become re-contextualized in new knowledge fields. In this case an architect that moved in to economics and computer modeling, and a software developer that move to on urban modeling. Besides ideas, both discipline – architecture and computing – also have their distinct cultures, how does this affect their views and/or moving from one field to another.
