Presented by York University's School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design and Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts & Technologies, The Media Architecture Summit 2016 explores the role of urban screens, interactive media façades, and large-scale public projections in architecture, public art, civic engagement and urban renewal. Beyond mere decoration, civic spectacle and city branding, Media Architecture shapes our collective identity through digital place-making, 24-hour architecture, and reanimating public space. Held for the first time in North America, MAS 2016 brings together artists and designers, architects, scholars, and representatives from the cultural sector and industry presenting a range of projects including context aware illuminated spaces, architectural projection, animated building façades, and interactive installations inviting spontaneous public performance.

MAS 2016 welcomes attendees from around the world to the TIFF Bell Lightbox, home of the Toronto International Film Festival. MAS opens with an evening keynote from internationally acclaimed media artist, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. The summit continues with a day of featured talks, panel discussions followed by an evening social hosted at InterAccess. The final day of the summit features workshops and an industry panel. MAS closes with a curated walk at Nuit Blanche Toronto, one of the world’s largest outdoor dusk-to-dawn art events.
