Description

City of Bits

An expedition into what makes a city

Our cities are complex systems that interconnect social, economic, and infrastructural elements. Within these large systems, we then build own smaller networks – trying to make the city work for us. A good city allows this interdependency to become a mutual benefit between basic services we cannot originally provide and the quality of our social interactions. The platform that enables this exchange to happen, is space. 

City of Bits is a journey to the very notion of this space, to our shared urban networks, to both the visible and invisible bits within the urban pattern. What marks a successful city amid the growing global challenges? Smart infrastructures, social care, creative hubs? Materiality, design, and dimension? We’ll look at public spaces, at the edges where the city meets the countryside, at digitalized urban infrastructures, and particularly at how architecture and urban spaces effect our societal behaviour.
