Architecture and the built environment have always been developed to provide a sense of safety, community, and privacy, and to allow cultural, social and economic growth. New innovation in the field of the unmanned machines, such as drones technology, have a large impact on the way we relate to our surroundings. Monitoring or surveillance can lead to a loss of privacy, safety and of possibilities for civil engagement. At the same time, these technologies offer new possibilities for comfort and efficiency. As architects, designers and researchers, we feel that the topic, although often discussed, needs to be addressed, researched and questioned further in a cohesive way.

The publication consists of five main themes: 1. Drones (surveillance machines); 2. Adhocracy (hacking and appropriating technologies); 3. Retreat (escaping current civilization and seeking for safe havens).
