Verso Books is the largest independent, radical publishing house in the English-speaking world.
Thousands of new cities are needed to house the increasing global population – projected to reach 10bn by 2060. From China’s planned Jing-Jin-Ji hypercity to African techno hubs and sprawling refugee camps, Adam Greenfield explores what the future holds
City Repair facilitates artistic and ecologically-oriented placemaking through projects that honor the interconnection of human communities and the natural world. City Repair has accomplished many projects through a mostly volunteer staff and thousands of volunteer citizen activists. We provide support, resources, and opportunities to help diverse communities reclaim the culture, power, and joy that we all deserve.
If the ambition beneath the instrumentation of the body is ostensible self-mastery, and that of the home is convenience, the ambition at the heart of the smart city is nothing other than control – the desire to achieve a more efficient use of space, energy and other resources.
Here, we developed the first spatially explicit dataset of urban settlements from 3700 BC to AD 2000, by digitizing, transcribing, and geocoding historical, archaeological, and census-based urban population data previously published in tabular form by Chandler and Modelski.
In his latest data viz roundup, Max Galka traces history’s largest cities, explores the great Uber takeover and searches for America’s creative communities
The Circle is a hub for charities, social enterprises, community groups and socially aware businesses in Dundee.
WHAT? Dundee Urban Orchard - otherwise known as DUO - is a city-wide art and horticulture project supporting individuals, community groups and cultural organisations to plant and care for small-scale orchards across Dundee. In addition to the practical benefits of enhancing biodiversity, accessing greenspace for community use and raising awareness of where food comes from, DUO…
Ministry of Space is a collective founded in 2011 with the aim of monitoring future development of Belgrade and other Serbian cities.
We already depend on the smartphone to navigate every aspect of our existence. We’re told that innovations—from augmented-reality interfaces and virtual assistants to autonomous delivery drones and self-driving cars—will make life easier, more convenient and more productive. 3D printing promises unprecedented control over the form and distribution of matter, while the blockchain stands to revolutionize everything from the recording and exchange of value to the way we organize the mundane realities of the day to day. And, all the while, fiendishly complex algorithms are operating quietly in the background, reshaping the economy, transforming the fundamental terms of our politics and even redefining what it means to be human.
Welcome to the New York City Internet Health Report, a Mozilla project made possible in collaboration with the NYC Mayor's Office of the Chief Technology Officer. To demonstrate what makes internet health meaningful for stakeholders and communities at the municipal level, this collection of case studies offers a portrait of a vibrant city working in different ways toward a common public good – an inclusive, safe, secure, open, and decentralized internet.
As we enter a third decade of popular reckoning with the idea of networked computation, any notion of a divide between the physical and the virtual is proving less and less tenable with every passing day. Slowly at first, but with increasing momentum, the ordinary things and places that have constituted the cities around us since there were such things as cities are identifying themselves to the global informatic network, or being identified to it.
Real-world objects and arrangements of objects; structures and locations; events and situations: all of these are acquiring representations in the virtual space of the network.
As yet, by far the greater number of these representations are passive — descriptions, really. These descriptions leave the objects in question only the most limited ability to take account of one another, adapt to the circumstances of use, or otherwise respond to evolving conditions.
This article examines the 'digital city' debate of the mid 1990s as a point of departure for a media-historical questioning of how technology and the discourse about technology were used as an experimental playground for new forms of knowledge that are fundamental for the understanding of today’s network society. This text has been presented as a conference paper at the 'networks and sustainability' track of the 'textiles' conference in Riga in June 2010. The paper will also appear in a special edition of the Arts and Communications Journal edited by RIXC at the end of 2010.
A new approach for inclusive growth
Toronto’s eastern waterfront presents an extraordinary opportunity to shape the city’s future and provide a global model for inclusive urban growth. Sidewalk Labs is honoured to present the Master Innovation and Development Plan (MIDP) for the Sidewalk Toronto project as a comprehensive proposal for how to realize that potential.
O curso propõe uma exploração teórica e prática de projetos e dispositivos digitais no espaço público. A parte teórica apresenta um estudo crítico das relações do humano com seu espaço analógico e digital: sociedade rede, espaço dos fluxos, protocolos, espaço híbrido, ciborgues espacialmente estendidos, governança algorítmica, stacks.A parte prática consiste no desenho de um projeto real para Adressenparken, um espaço publico tecnológico na cidade de Trondheim. Vinculado a Universidade de ciência e tecnologia da Noruega (NTNU), Adressenparken é um laboratório para pesquisa e inovação, teste de novas soluções, debate social e comunicação de conhecimento relacionado a arte e tecnologia digital no espaço urbano. Como parte da estância de pesquisa em NTNU do professor Dr. Pablo DeSoto, o projeto será implementado de fato na segunda semana de Outubro. A proposta de intervenção pode explorar, por exemplo, as possibilidades da arquitetura como interface comunicativa digital entre geolocalizações remotas, criando um espaço público tecnológico ampliado entre Trondheim, Noruega e João Pessoa, Brasil.
