Smart City design research
Commissioned by Atelier Stad, part of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, VenhoevenCS architecture+urbanism has been working on a Smart City exploration by design research. Amsterdam, Delft and Assen delivered concrete cases to investigate the applications and spatial components of the concept of Smart City.
We applied an integral and designing approach to the research to be able to deepen the understanding in spatial and policy aspects of the Smart City concept.
Together with the municipalities, Platform31, TNO and local stakeholders we examined various aspects of Smart City related to local needs and focus and relevant to the participating municipalities.
After the summer, the results of the research will be published.
