Professor Catherine Bonier of Carleton University’s Azrieli School of Architecture and urbanism will be presenting a paper in June of 2017 at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. Her paper, titled Visionary Digitalia: Filthy Games and Pernicious Beauty, assesses the visual, material, and political implications of architecturally imagined video games and “smart cities.” Professor Bonier’s talk will focus on a comparison of Grand Theft Auto V’s city of Los Santos and Shanghai Zendai’s Modderfontein New City in South Africa.
