With the accelerating urbanisation of the global population, cities are fast becoming places for experimentation in social interactions, governance and community life. More than ever, modern cities are testbeds for urban renewal concepts that seek to address a wide range of cultural, social, economical and political issues, often with conflicting interests. 

This symposium discusses the increasingly popular concepts of urban ‘hacking’, city apps and the exploration of ‘in-between spaces’. These are the new platforms for alternative experiences of a city as a liveable, creative and empowering habitat, designed by and for its people.

This event is ideal for academic researchers, architects, urban designers, town planners, engineers, creative industry professionals, students and anyone interested in 'smart cities', responsive environments, interaction design, IoT, service design and public art.

This event is presented, and will be facilitated by, Luke Hespanhol and Steven Bai.
