Ben van Berkel, founder of UNSense:
“It’s time to catch up with technology”
“I see a great opportunity as an architect to create buildings and cities that are sensible and sensitive to human beings. The digital revolution is driving change in every part of our lives, except within the built environment. Now it’s time to catch up with technology. Built upon UNStudio’s 30 years of experience in architectural design, UNSense presents the opportunity to fully integrate digital and sensorial technology into the architectural design process. We don’t believe in technology for the sake of technology. Besides performance and efficiency, we believe technology offers a great opportunity to the very essence of architecture: people. Our aim is to humanise architecture, to improve people’s physical, mental and social health through tech interventions within the built environment.Up untill now users had to adapt to whatever architects had in their mind. Now it’s time for the architecture to adapt to its users. Artificial Intelligence and digital and sensorial technologies allow us to create buildings and cities that adapt to the needs of individuals and populations at large. We think that makes sense.”
