Planning smart urban environments

The course focuses on the study and design of urban areas which projects for digital / intelligent/ smart cities, intelligent clusters, living labs, intelligent environments and / or sustainable design with ICT are implemented. 
Through the observation, and in particular through the documentation and analysis of their operation and experience, the course aims to study the spatial approaches of smart city planning, to highlight the role of architecture in these areas, and to reveal the complex dimension of design as a synthesis of technologies, interaction-involvement of the user and stakeholders and the space.
Students get familiarized with the basic principles and concepts using urban data, information and build participatory design.

Upon the successful completion of the course the student will be able to:

1. To connect the logic of using ICT with their influence on the operation of the city space and its design.
2. To know the different approaches that frame this relationship internationally.
3. To describe the spatial mutations that occur due to the use of ICT.
4. To propose the strategic redesign of an area where intelligent technologies will be applied and to evaluate its contribution to sustainable development (UN goals)
