Arup Explores

Alvise Simondetti
Global Explores Lead

Arup Explores is a series of global events, engagements and learning journeys focusing on disruptive themes and their implications on the built environment. Over the years, Arup Explores has explored a range of themes, including digital fabrication, biomimicry, Machine Learning and prototyping.

Urban agriculture

Rapid urbanisation and population growth, lifestyle changes, resource scarcity, the climate emergency and technological advancements are contributing to a radical rethinking of the food cycle in cities.

Designing with digital fabrication

Construction as we know it is changing. Offsite manufacturing, modular construction and a new approach to machine intelligence are supporting radical new building techniques. These changes are challenging how we design, how we choose and use materials, and how we make decisions.
