Ideal Spaces is an art and research working group focused on the shaping of contemporary living spaces. Drawing from historical and technological research, the group, composed of cultural theorists, digital engineers and artists, develops interactive exhibitions and platforms of exchange. Such activities are aimed at proposing mechanisms to generate ideal spaces, thus, we are not only concerned with architecture, but also with processes of social imagination. These exchanges are linked with to research projects, as well as to practical ones, aimed at changing actual living conditions. Such an intersection of art, science, technology and vision seeks to tackle one of the most important problems of the near future: ongoing urbanisation, and the deterioration of natural and human conditions.
