Soft Urbanism @ University of Architecture, Design and Planning Aalborg

The lecture Soft Urbanism 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.

Lecture Soft Urbanism, Between Physical and Digital Public Domain @ University of Architecture, Design and Planning, Tegnesalen, Toldkammeret, Aalborg, Denmark, 15 November 2007

Soft Urbanism deals with information/communication processes in public space, the soft aspects overlying the urban sprawl and modifying it: the invisible networks acting as attractors, transforming the traditional urban structure, interweaving, ripping open and cutting through the urban tissue, demanding interfaces.
