Audio Paper 1: Mediating Sustainable Cities: Digital and Public Space.
In this audio paper, we focus on the role of media in the creation of public spaces, both online and in urban context. We show unconventional use of media by two actors Banksy and the Hong Kong Umbrella Movement. Public space is the necessary building stone on which a more human-centered smart city can be built. The audio paper is based on the work of Paola Monachesi and Marina Turco. The two authors tell us how their research came about and highlight relevant issues.
