Online Meetup | On Citizens, Their Cities, and the Role of Design

Date: 9 April, 2020
Time: 13:00 – 16:00
Online Meetup via Zoom 

In this meetup, we’ll look at the affordances and promises of current (online) platforms and technologies. We will start by questioning how media architecture can be used to create a fair(er) and inclusive city. We will follow with an exploration of the issue of inclusivity on the scale of a neighborhood, with the intention to improve the current situation by designing forms of media architecture and digital platforms.

Speakers: Piet Vollaard (City in the Making) and Saskia Beer (Transformcity); moderated by Professor Ben Schouten (Master Digital Design)
