REaction workshop / SMART CITY CONCEPTS
Smart cities make instrumented, interconnected and intelligent systems. This new urban concept is generated by the lifestyle of today’s citizens, who increasingly use digital devices to maintain them informed of local and global happenings. According to studies, almost 90% of the citizens had at least one account on social sites in 2012.
This kind of urban behaviors affects the role of the architect as a urban designer, demanding knowledge, understanding and application of new analysis and design tools, in order to consider several variables that have an impact in the design parameters of any project.
Based on the “Smart City” concept, the workshop will focus on the analysis, understanding and proposal of this new approach through the next three steps:
- Presentation of three case studies regarding the concept of Smart City in the Urban Public Space developed in the Master of Advanced Architecture of the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC), specifically in three different streets of Barcelona: Pere IV (video below), Meridiana (image below) and Paseo Grácia (PDF below).
- Approach to the first visualization tools and based on the mapping concept (data collection, interpretation, representation and new analysis strategies).
- Tools application over different urban contexts in order to understanding the relation between Paris and the smart city concept.
- The workshop results will be published in the collective blog and web page, with the goal of amplifying the range of influence of this developing concept and bring to public view the work of all the people involved in this knowledge incubator.
