Social Cities of Tomorrow.
Review by Lawrence Bird
On Feb. 17th Amsterdam hosted Social Cities of Tomorrow, a conference on
new media and urbanism. Adapting its title from Ebenezer Howard’s Garden
Cities of Tomorrow, but taking equal inspiration from the work of
Archigram, the conference presented a snapshot of the direction cities
are moving today: as conventional means of planning and designing are
renegotiated through our engagement with new media technologies.
Lawrence Bird is a designer, instructor and writer with an interest in
cities and their image. He has trained in architecture (B.Arch), social
sciences and urban design (MSc), and history and theory of architecture
(PhD). He has recently completed the SSHRC-funded postdoctoral project
Beyond the Desert of the Real, based in Winnipeg, Canada.
