physical + digital | what if cities…?

CATEGORY: ⚐ EN + daz + ecosistema urbano

What if cities project is an ambitious urban social design project. Its aim is to bring citizenship to the design and management of their physical and social environment.

Social solidarity and quality urban space together with efficient public services are the main factors to ensure that a city provides a good quality of life. To achieve this, it is necessary to leave aside the conventional schemes which consider citizens as mere users without any possibility to participate in the design and management of their city beyond voting every four years.

What if cities offers a range of activities, services and integrated platforms that aim to move in that direction. Among all activities, ecosistema urbano has developed a participation tool on the internet to enable citizens to play an active role in the creation of public space and decision making processes of their cities. This project was born from an exhibition that took place at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen. The internet tool in now active in many different cities: Ferrara, Alicante, Tel Aviv, Nantes, Cáceres, etc..

This is part of the exhibition looking through ecosistema urbano eyes, included in the FORMEL_ X architecture series, curated by Kristien Ring.
