Soft Urbanism

between
Physical
and
Digital
Public
Domain

The lecture will address the interaction between the physical and the digital public domain in the contemporary urban networks. It will focus on the way that the physical environment relates to the space of mass media and communication networks and how these influence each other. A short theoretical introduction will form the background for the presentation of a series of projects.
