Networked Urbanism

design thinking initiatives for a better urban life

Design critics: Belinda Tato and Jose Luis Vallejo, principals of Ecosistema Urbano

This workshop, under the title of “Designing human cities for the digital age”, aims to provide an alternative to the traditional approach of designing urban environments from a bird’s-eye view, and a single designer’s perspective. #networkedurbanism not only examines the physical dimension of the city, but also its social processes and fluxes, made visible through the digital layer, developing initiatives that generate spontaneous transformations and set up conditions for change.

Students will make intensive use of ditial tools and media to find opportunities of improving public spaces around Hong Kong, to define proposals for a better urban life, and to broadcast their message in the most effective way.
