Description

city of bits

an expedition into what makes a city

Our cities are complex systems that interconnect all our social, economic, cultural, 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 the interdependency of the smaller and bigger systems to be a space of mutual benefit, a place for our well-being, creativity, health, and progress. But cities are also becoming increasingly demanding, contradictive even, serving many functions that can diametrically differ in size and nature.

What is it, then, that makes a good city? And how are we part of it?

While too complex to fully comprehend a city, we can get to know a fragments, its bits, each at a time: decoding the growing complexity of our shared spaces amid the rapid changes we are facing, both on a local and global scale. 

city of bits is a journey to the very notion of shared urban networks, to both the visible and hidden aspects, from basic infrastructures to our own individual networks; from large-scale institutions to neighborhood encounter points: the city must work before we can make the city work for us...

During the seminar 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 can affect our societal behavior.
