Tuba Kocaturk - Designing the smart cities of the future


  Last updated October 25, 2019 at 3:40 pm


Tuba Kocaturk is at the forefront of bringing technology and architecture together in the smart cities of the future.

Why this matters: The future is going to need a whole new breed of architect.

With the buzz around Smart Cities, Tuba Kocaturk’s MInD Lab at Deakin University investigates the ways that technologies can actually be used to make smart cities work.

Deeper: Technology is the answer, what is the question?

Living the philosophy of “real world problems do not know disciplines”, Tuba begins by defining the real problems faced by the world, and bringing together the multiple disciplines required to achieve a solution. This could include bringing together digital tools and 3D visualisation and architecture, and other disciplines needed to reach an answer that is realistically achievable.

Find out what drives this architect of the future, and how she got to be a leader in her field.
