Responsive Architecture

Buildings today are sealed, hermetic structures that never move and never change. But new technologies and materials are allowing our buildings to move, evolve, and even respond — not only to their environments, but to us, too. We talk to Sidewalk Labs' Jesse Shapins, engineer Goncalo Pedro, author Sharon Francis, and renowned architect Liz Diller of Diller Scofidio + Renfro.For a link-rich transcript of this episode, visit http://bit.ly/cotfep10

Dan Doctoroff unpacks our Toronto plan

Today, Sidewalk Labs’ proposal for Toronto, the Master Innovation and Development Plan (MIDP), will be released to the public. And because a lot of the innovations in the MIDP are episode topics that we’ll be exploring in Season 2, we figured we’d drop a special bonus episode with a special guest: Sidewalk Labs CEO Dan Doctoroff.
