Australian-born architect, filmmaker and performer Liam Young is the founder of the urban futures think tank Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today as well as the award-winning nomadic workshop Unknown Fields Division. At the core of Young’s multidisciplinary practice is a continuous interrogation of the present realities of cities to imagine possible future urbanisms.
Young has taught internationally at the Architectural Association, Princeton University, and now runs the groundbreaking MA in Fiction and Entertainment at Sci Arc in Los Angles. His narrative approach sits between documentary and fiction as he focuses on projects that aim to reveal the invisible connections and systems that make the modern world work. Young manages his time between exploring distant landscapes and prototyping the future worlds he extrapolates from them.
