TOWARD THE SENTIENT CITY
An exhibition critically exploring the evolving relationship between
ubiquitous computing, architecture, and urban space 

Curated by Mark Shepard and organized by the Architectural League of New York 
September 17–November 7, 2009 

http://www.sentientcity.net 

Opening reception 
Thurday, September 17, 2009 
6:00–9:00 p.m. 
457 Madison Avenue 
New York City 

As computing leaves the desktop and spills out onto the sidewalks, streets,
and public spaces of the world around us, we increasingly find information
processing capacity embedded within and distributed throughout the material
fabric of everday urban space. Artifacts and systems we interact with on a
daily basis collect, store, and process information about us, or are
activated by our movements and transactions. Ubiquitous computing
evangelists herald a coming age of urban infrastructure capable of sensing
and responding to the events and activities transpiring around them. Imbued
with the capacity to remember, correlate and anticipate, this near-future
“sentient” city is envisioned as being capable of reflexively monitoring its
environment and our behavior within it, becoming an active agent in the
organization of everyday life in urban public space. 

Toward the Sentient City explores alternate trajectories for the design and
inhabitation of this near-future urban environment. Organized around five
newly commissioned projects distributed throughout the city, the exhibition
features: 

Too Smart City 
JooYoun Paek, David Jimison 

Amphibious Architecture 
Living Architecture Lab (David Benjamin and Soo-in Yang), xdesign
Environmental Health Clinic (Natalie Jeremijenko) 

Natural Fuse 
Usman Haque, Nitipak Samsen, Ai Hasegawa, Cesar Harada, Barbara Jasinowicz 

Trash Track 
SENSEable City Laboratory, MIT 

Breakout! 
Anthony Townsend (Institute for the Future), Georgia Borden, Amanda Kross,
Jung Hoon Kim, Antonina Simeti (DEGW), Dana Spiegel (NYC wireless), Laura
Forlano (Parsons The New School for Design), Tony Bacigalupo (New Work
City), Sean Savage (PariSoMa), Elysse Preposi (Sarah Lawrence College)

Architecture, School of Architecture and Planning and the Department of
Media Study, College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Buffalo.
