CALL:

Smart, intelligent, digital, ubiquitous. While star architects develop ‘spectacle architecture’ for example, property developers produce gated communities, and urban planners grapple with urban expansion. This all happens while conservationists dedicate themselves to preserving the past and historians continue exploring former lives of our ancient towns.

The city we imagine for the future then, will be a complex set of factors and components from the past, and present. Navigating this multiplicity will be key to the futures now being imagined and how we maintain our cultural traditions.

The site of some of the most iconic architectural heritage in the world, it is also a country of burgeoning contemporary architecture and future planning. Operating within this complex tapestry is the National Government’s 100 Smart Cities Mission, an ambitious project to ‘update’ 100 of its existing cities, their infrastructure and their architecture

In many ways, 100 Smart Cities captures issues at the heart of smart city agendas across the world and raises questions, possibilities and concerns related to ‘digital futures’ globally: How do architects respond to the ‘traditional’ needs of our cities and their people? What is the heritage we need to preserve and how do we do it?  What are the practicalities of digital integration in existing infrastructures? What long term prosperity will emerge from the digital city? Will we be exposed to ‘surveillance capitalism’? How do we most benefit from the inevitable changes to the make-up of our future cities? How can our present condition and our cultural past coexist in this emerging future?
