Event Description


According to a forecast by the United Nations (UN), 70% of the world population will live in urban courts in 2050. In addition, the UN warns that the increasing population in cities can become a serious urban issue, unless citizens reach a balance between the social and environmental aspects and among themselves.
The concept of “Smart City” (associated to the concept of “Smart Growth”), is proposed in a social context where infrastructure and population of urban areas continue to grow, in many cases, dispro- portionately. Therefore a “Smart City” is the one that uses technological advances and tools to support and improve the quality of life of its citizens.

Based on the “Smart City” concept, the workshop will be focused on the analysis, understanding and proposal of this new approach through the next three steps:

  • Presentation of three case studies regarding the concept of Smart City in the Urban Public Space developed in the Master of Advanced Architecture of the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC), specifically in three different streets of Barcelona: Pere IV, Meridiana and Paseo Grácia.
  • Approach to the first visualization tools and based on the mapping concept (data collection, interpretation, representation and new analysis strategies).
  • Tools application over different urban contexts in order to understanding the relation between Paris and the smart city concept.
  • The workshop results will be published in the collective blog and web page, with the goal of amplifying the range of influence of this developing concept and bring to public view the work of all the people involved in this knowledge incubator.
