Shaping Smart for Better Cities

Shaping Smart for Better Cities powerfully demonstrates the range of theoretical and practical challenges, opportunities and success factors involved in successfully deploying digital technologies in cities, focusing on the importance of recognizing local context and multi-layered urban relationships in designing successful urban interventions. The first section, ‘Rethinking Smart (in) Places’ interrogates the smart city from a theoretical vantage point. The second part, ‘Shaping Smart Places’ examines various case studies critically. Hence the volume offers an intellectual resource that expands on the current literature, but also provides a pedagogical resource to universities as well as a reflective opportunity for practitioners. The cases allow for an examination of the practical implications of smart interventions in space, whilst the theoretical reflections enable expansion of the literature. Students are encouraged to learn from case studies and apply that learning in design. Academics will gain from the learning embedded in the documentation of the case studies in different geographic contexts, while practitioners can apply their learning to the conceptualisation of new forms of technology use. Demonstrates how to adapt smart urban interventions for hyper-local context in geographic parameters, spatial relationships, and socio-political characteristics Provides a problem-solving approach based on specific smart place examples, applicable to real-life urban management Offers insights from numerous case studies of smart cities interventions in real civic spaces

Come è possibile progettare città più “sostenibili”, “resilienti” e “smart” in un’era di scarsità di risorse, profondi conflitti sociali ed epocali emergenze ambientali? Le nuove e complesse sfide urbane stanno profondamente cambiando il ruolo di progettisti e pianificatori, sempre più “designer/manager” di un costante processo di revisione di tutto ciò che concerne l’habitat umano. Indagando in modo cross-disciplinare il complesso sistema di relazioni fra uomo, città e risorse naturali, si presenta un nuovo approccio a progetto e attuazione
