9788415391296: City Sense: Shaping our environment with real-time data. (Advanced Architecture Contest)

This publication compiles the winning and the finalist entries of the City Sense competition, organized by the Institute of Advanced Architecture. The competition was open to architects, engineers, planners, designers and artists who wanted to contribute to progress in making the world more habitable by developing proposals capable of responding to emerging challenges in areas such as ecology, information technology, architecture, and urban planning, with the purpose of balancing the possible impact of real-time data collection on sensor-driven cities. The competition jury, which was composed of architects, experts from a wide range of fields and directors of some of the world's foremost architecture schools, were looking for outstanding proposals of any scale, for any city in the world. The book presents a selection of the best projects on Smart Cities, Eco Neighbourhoods, Self-Sufficient Buildings, Intelligent Homes and other proposals which examine the phenomena of sensor-driven cities and intelligent behavioural systems.

From the Inside Flap:

Envisaging the habitat of the 21st-century city

Review:

This tiny book presents essays as well as graphics and technical details of selected best-projects from a Catalonian architecture and design conference. The theme was futurist designs for the 21st century. The pictures and projects themselves are remarkably bold, in no small part because they originate in response to the pressing need for more environmentally friendly design and responsive infrastructure. To that end, some essays focus on buildings, like self-sufficient communities with complex roof-top ecosystems, while others on theoretical points and strategies of design, such as the utilization of information technology to realize the city as a kind of organism. There are several essays toward the front of the book that introduce some of the more specific issues, like data-sensing and cultivating a post-machinic sensibility, that drive the architects, engineers, and designers featured. Selections are then organized according five sections on sensors and data-sensing, adaptive and reactive systems, the city as a behavioral system, parametric technologies, and theories and strategies. The participants are engineers, designers, and architects from around the world. Each entry refers to the participant's country of origin and a map in the back functions as a country index. --Research Book News
