CALL

Today, the city is a technological infused entity premised on a plethora of digital phenomena including the Internet of Things, ubiquitous computing, computer-led infrastructure, big data and AI. It is also a place designed, envisaged and increasingly built through data-based digital architecture, planning and construction. The result is a series of complex interactions of people, place and data, and the establishment of the ‘digital city’, ‘smart buildings’ and ‘intelligent’ urbanism. 

Today then, the potential for technology and data to alter how we design, live and experience our cities is obvious and everywhere. However, there are concerns. Cambridge Analytica is the most obvious example in the political realm. More mundane examples include GIS, Google Maps and Facebook. They all offer interconnected information on urban habits and people’s personal lives and have been repeatedly connected to the misuse of data. The assumption of digital access for all leads some to worry about issues of social exclusion. Others highlight the dangers of the digital dependency of future generations. The industries that produce the physical and digital infrastructure of our cities are not immune. 3D printed buildings threaten job losses in the construction industry while the idea of parametric urbanism challenges even the traditional role of designers and architects themselves.

This conference seeks to explore these and related issues from a variety of discipline perspectives.
