Growing Cities: Crowds, Games and the Web

Wednesday 22 April, 6-7pm
Duke Street Lecture Theatre

Free public lecture as part of the N170 lecture series, with Marie-Claire Isaaman Senior Lecturer in Games Innovation and Research and BA (Hons) Architecture Visiting Professor Anthony Hudson.

How can the planning of our cities, towns and villages be more responsive to the desires and wishes of their inhabitants?

To date we have relied on top down thinking that hasn’t captured the real needs of people. In contrast this talk proposes a radical departure from normal ways of thinking about planning our environment. It takes forward ideas from Anthony Hudson’s last lecture How the City lost its spots: pattern, order and chaos and brings the discussion firmly into the 21st Century, looking at how the web and digital games offer exciting opportunities for us all to design the places we want to live in.
