  • The Adaptive City- Dan Hill from cityofsound posted an excellent essay, titled "The Adaptive City," which will appear in the exhibition catalog for "Urban Play":
    "Urban information design emerges in a call-and-response relationship with informatics, filtering and describing these patterns for the benefit of citizens and machines...The invisible becomes visible, as the impact of people on their urban environment can be understood in real-time...The new technologies of urban informatics and city information modelling enable citizens to reflect on their city, engage in the design, adapt their behaviour and the city around them." Those interested in this subject are encouraged to check out videos of the New Silent Series panel Nextcity: Art of the Possible on Rhizome's Vimeo.
