ABOUT "THE URBANISTS" LECTURE
New forms of public space are emerging. Through an exploration of definitions of urban environments, four lecturers will examine this time when public space is more personal, ubiquitous computing is allowing cities to have an impact on users' experiences, and the design of services to truly be vibrant and meaningful. As inhabitants of a city, these things are often invisible in the way we craft experiences. Learn from four practitioners how to be more aware and discerning of their presence around us.
* Adam Greenfield, head of design direction at Nokia and author of the forthcoming "The City Is Here For You To Use"
* Soo-in Yang, Founder and principal of The Living, adjunct assistant professor at Columbia University, Graduate School of Architecture
* Rachel Abrams, Creative Director, Turnstone Consulting LLC, and forthcoming faculty member, MFA Interaction Design
* Phil Kline, Composer and Public Sound Artist
