What is the relationship between city visions and urban concepts from the past and today’s Smart City narratives?
Climate City explores how digital technologies contribute to addressing climate adaptation and develops digitalization strategies that take urban sustainability into account. Climate City focuses on digitally supported participatory climate adaptation and is committed to the idea that a smart city should be a climate-conscious city.
What’s the future like? For professionals in the exhibition business this is a very relevant and difficult problem. Because the future does not give us any objects yet.
The workshop is an experimental laboratory that strongly interacts with the public. During the workshop the participants learn how to use a Do It Yourself (DIY) 3D printer and how to share the digital design information of physical objects through online communities.
Recent developments such as Internet of Things, Big Data and Machine Intelligence will algorithmically organize life, including urban nature. These developments in technology and media are supporting the development of a new hybrid architecture where architecture and nature fuse.
Hybridization is an evolutionary strategy of cumulative, dynamic cultures that are based on intercultural connections and fostered by cross-fertilization.
Increasingly tourism is contributing to global prosperity and enabling intercultural exchange, increasing the global ecological footprint and threatening local culture.
Highly innovative, creative and pragmatic Dutch approach to develop technology solutions for global challenges at the Hannover Messe 2014.
Cross-fertilisation, borrowing other’s ideas and incorporating elements of other’s culture into one’s own is crucial to cultural development.
For a week, from 8 October till 15 October 1999, a boat descended the Rhine, the archetypal symbol of connection between Germany and the Netherlands, as a floating media-laboratory, from Cologne on its way to Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
The workshop focused on hybrid space and its notations, and participants included architects, urbanists, landscape architects, software and hardware engineers, philosophers, theatre makers and media artists. The workshop tackled the hybridity and complexity of urban environments, relying on a wide range of fields of expertise and artistic approaches.
Is there no security in the global world? The longing for more certainty in an increasingly complex world – and innovative solutions for coping.
Trust and certainty play an increasingly important role for people in the globalized world. Globalization does not only take place “outside”. For one’s personal environment is also becoming globalized – actual living space is expanded to encompass the virtual space of the Internet.
