Hello Cities

This is the blog where Fred Garnett, from a social cities perspective, and Carl Smith, from a context-driven perspective, will blog about the future of cities, their Death & Life, their supralinear qualities, emerging pattern designs and, most importantly, how to design for their smart sensors without making Minority Report come true, and all things contextual and innovative.

The title is inspired by Lewis Mumford’s The City in History, The image is from Arles. We like Steven Berlin Johnson The Ghost Mapneighbourhood mapping and Transition Towns too.

We originally started this blog as The City in Context, as that is our view on how to develop social and participatory cities post Web2.0, but we have renamed it to align with the UnSmart Cities movement.

Happy reading!
