Renowned as a hub of entrepeneurship and innovation, Silicon Valley is notoriously difficult to experience. It lacks borders, a defining architecture, a singular culture, a central gathering point, a cohesive sense of place. To help explore this landscape of possibility, Institute for the Future designed the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial map, which gives examples of four alternative futures for the Bay Area.

Join us in a group discussion to explore future visions for Silicon Valley as we work together to re-imagine the idea, the place, and the experience of Silicon Valley. Limited Seating RSVP Today!
