  1. Elements of a Networked Urbanism by Adam Greenfield

    Over the past several years, we’ve watched as a very wide variety of objects and surfaces familiar from everyday life have been reimagined as networked information-gathering, -processing, -storage and -display resources. Why should cities be any different?

    What happens to urban form and metropolitan experience under such circumstances? What are the implications for us, as designers, consumers and as citizens?

    Adam Greenfield lives in a city and thinks you probably do, too.

  2. Our Urban Future: the death of distance and the rise of cities

    Improvements in transportation and communication technologies have led some to predict the death of distance, and with that, the death of the city. In this lecture Professor Ed Glaeser will argue that these improvements have actually been good for idea-producing cities at the same time as they have been devastating for goods-producing places. What, then, does the future hold for our cities?

    Speaker: Professor Edward Glaeser, Professor of Economics at Harvard, and Director of the Taubman Center for State and Local Government and the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston; Chair: Howard Davies
