Liam Young keynote | Dezeen Day 2019

Director Liam Young explains why “we must all actively shape and define” the future with architecture and film-making in this video of his keynote at Dezeen Day.

Young, a film director who calls himself a “speculative architect”, was one of three keynote speakers at Dezeen’s inaugural conference on 30 October.

At the event he explained his use of film-making techniques to visualise the impact of emerging technologies on the future of the planet.

Young uses technology such as drones and Lidar 3D scanners to create his films. He was one of the experts interviewed in Dezeen’s short documentary Elevation, where he predicted that drones will be “as disruptive as the internet” in terms of city design.

He played some of his science fiction shorts and narrative documentaries to the Dezeen Day audience, including Tomorrow’s Story, Seoul Machine City and In the Robot Skies – the first film to be shot entirely with drone-mounted cameras.
