Dear Guests and Speakers of Media Architecture 2007,

On behalf of the team of organisers I’d like to thank you for having spent two great days with us. It was mainly your contributions, questions and comments that made it a success.

In the next days and week we want to provide more documentation material of the conference and of course we keep on posting projects and news in the field of Media Architecture.

There have been a lot of new projects in the presentations but also during the coffee brakes, that are waiting for being referenced here.

If you have the impression that a certain project is missing here please send me an e-mail: gt[at] or use the “Suggest a project” button.

I hope you have enjoyed the conference,
Let’s keep in touch,
