Dr. Tim May from SURF will host MIT’s Mike Joroff who will talk about 'inventional' parts of our cities. He will invite us to imagine future cities where citizens shape their own experience, delight themselves, learn and build community, and how scientists and artists can transparently enable such creativity through working in partnership with one another.

Mike Joroff is an expert in Media Cities and was one of the lead consultants on MediaCityUK. He is an urban planning expert and a consultant on urban development projects in the USA, South Korea, Japan, Britain, Sweden, and Abu Dhabi. He is also sought after as an adviser on property development strategy and the design of workplaces.

He teaches globally about the impact of new business models and emerging technology on the design of corporate workplaces and large-scale property developments. He offers insights into groundbreaking work in the fields of energy management, environmental policy, urban design, housing technology and the management of corporate property. A futurist and pioneer of the ‘Think, Play, Do’ methods of maximising creative potential in the workplace, he will challenge us to take control of our own cities of the future.
