Printer-friendly versionSend by email

I will give a keynote called "Three dimensions of the digital city." Three dimensions are people, things, and nature. And all three of them are being internally and externally re-organized to deal with the growth of complexity. And a key component of the material infrastructure on which this is happening is digital technology.

About the conference
In the twenty-first century, urbanization and ecosystems deterioration are affecting cities and their peripheries making them the nexus of mankind’s challenges and opportunities. Conventional top-down master planning and municipality policymaking are not delivering the systemic changes needed to improve urban space living conditions for city citizens.

International Conference and Summer School’2019 Technopolitics in Urban Regeneration: Co-creating Public Spaces will tackle several questions with an argument that cities are a melting pot of new forms of sociability and collective action founded on an association between humans and digital technologies.
