Ideas to ponder

Tracey Lauriault

Keynote address at the Future Cities Forum

Presented by Artengine and Impact Hub Ottawa in partnership with the National Capital Commission Urbanism Lab

Part of a group of 3 keynotes, speculating on future cities in the context of emerging and disruptive technologies. How will and can we adapt the key lessons of urban design of the twentieth century and not be seduced by the same techno-utopianism that shaped cities in the past? As we are transformed and extended into the network, how will a citizen be in public or private in our new data-driven city? Who will be the heroes and anti-heroes of the cities to come?
