The focus will be two concepts created especially for the show: Rachel Atthis, director of Arup, will present Rethinking Oil Rigs; and Martin Wright, director of Scott Brownrigg, will present Mixed Use and Up Close. These two visions will be critiqued by Rennie Dalrymple, managing director of Concert, who are project managers, cost consultants and health & safety consultants for data centres. And Marina Otero Verzier, architect and head of MA in Social Design at Design Academy Eindhoven, will explore data centres as ‘post-human institutions’.
