Cityscapes with Carlo Ratti
20th November, 2018
This podcast features an interview with Professor of Urban Technologies and Planning and Director of SENSEable City lab at MIT, Carlo Ratti.
As layers of networks and digital information blanket urban space, new approaches to the study of the built environment are emerging. The way we describe and understand cities is being radically transformed—as are the tools we use to design them .Carlo and the team at SENSEable City Lab develop and deploy tools to learn about cities—so that cities can learn about us.
In this pocast, Carlo discusses these concepts while examining how a city like Sydney can ethically and better leverage data to deliver better planning and urban design outcomes. Topics covered includes the challenges of automated vehicles, mobility as a service, efficient density and much more.
Carlo has been featured in Wired Magazine’s “Smart List”, Blueprint Magazine included him among the “25 People who will Change the World of Design,” and Fast Company named him as one of the “50 Most Influential Designers in America.”
