The Lisbon Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology and the Institute for Art History, Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities of Lisbon are jointly organising an international conference entitled “Post-internet Cities” in Lisbon on the 26th of May. This conference seeks to promote a critical reflection as to how digital technologies can affect the conceptualisation and inner-workings of cities. Furthermore, it will explore how art and architecture can respond to these shifting trends.
André Pina, Researcher at the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), University of Lisbon, will give presentation on the role of academia in relation to the design of smart cities. This presentation will focus on the involvement of the IN+ research group with regards to the design process of smart cities, examining its participation in 2 smart cities projects: Sharing Cities and Suscity, the latter of which focuses on the development of energy and materials consumption models within urban areas as well as the identification of potential measures to facilitate efficiency improvements.
IST will detail its role within Sharing Cities and help to enable the Institute, as well as the project, to engage with architects, artists and urban planners in the domains of urban design and citizens’ engagement.
