UrbanIxD Summer School

Getting Ready to Participate



The UrbanIxD Summer School will explore our relationship with data in the Networked City of the near future. The approach will focus on human interactions and how these might change and develop and thereby impact on the development of cities. The output of the Summer School will provide the opportunity to rethink what intelligent connected communities of the future might actually look like.


Participants may find it useful to collect research material that would inform and provoke initial group discussions and concept generation sessions. Such material should be wide ranging and may include anything from examples of work from designers / artists / architects, literary and film references even science fiction. Every participant will present his/hers research findings to the other group members. It will provide a good opportunity to begin to assess what approach you may like to take towards the brief and also to introduce yourself and your specific expertise.
