The first week of lectures were specially curated by the faculty to inspire limitless ideas for the design of the future city. As we took our first site visit and collected observations of Brooklyn's Red Hook, the speakers opened up new realms of inquiry with their emerging practices. The 2012 ONE Lab Future Cities Program lecture series opened with a talk by DJ Spooky. The following days, the discussions continued with Alexander Felson, Bill Washabaugh, Janna Levin, Vito Acconci, Jason Vollen, and Kaja Kuehl. After a week of intensive design studio meetings and actively engaging the topics presented, we closed the week with a deserved celebration at the closing of Terreform ONE's Design for the Real World REDUX at the White Box Gallery in NYC.
