Smart Cities

Andy Pratt give a keynote paper at a symposium organised by Zurich School of Art, and Tokyo University  of Art, Zurich Centre for Creative Economies, and the Swiss Embassy in Tokyo on Smart Cities on July 3-4th. The symposium consisted of a number of papers by Swiss and Japanese academics debating the future of the idea of smart cities and whether there was space of culture and design: “Smart Cities and Creativity: Towards A New Intersection of Urban and Culture Theory – A Challenge after the Pandemic”.

All of the contributions, including any’s were recorded, and are available on the web site. Andy’s paper was entitled “from smart cities to smart citizens?” (and the presentation can be downloaded) and was a provocative intervention about the challenge to public space and the Creative Commons that many smart city initiatives represent.
