The Design & the City workshops were hands-on sessions around the many facets of citizen-centered design for the smart city. We invited designers, students, scholars, public administrators, artists, activists and all smart citizens to join us in sharing insights, collaborate on research practices, experimenting with research methods, and cooperating towards new civic platforms. Please refer to each workshop’s page for specific information.
