What makes a city 'smart'? Does the integration of technology make a city and its citizens more intelligent? Does it increase quality of life? Does it result in economic, social and environmental sustainability? Or, might this increase the digital divide and erode our personal privacy and autonomy?
Join us as we investigate these questions using design research tools and methods. This is an opportunity to collaborate with your peers and faculty, gain new skills, map the evolution of the city in alignment with technology, and uncover design scenarios that can lead to more inclusive, ethical, sustainable, and intelligent futures.
There are a limited number of spaces available for the charrette, so apply early!
Please note: Participants will be expected to commit to the duration of the charrette, which will run from approx. 10am-5pm each day. Teams will be lead by School of Design staff & faculty.
