UrgentCity – Towards a New Vocabulary of Terms

UrgentCity, organized by Amateur Cities and New Generations took place on November 11 & 12, 2016 at La Palazzina Reale in Florence, Italy. For two days invited guests from various disciplines took part in a series of workshops and discussions structured around four main categories: New Ecologies, Urban Assets, Digital Toolkit and New Collectives. Each day built on a workshop session that led to public round-table debate in the evening.

I contributed to The Digital Toolkit theme, discussing how the language of technology influences the way we live, and how an ‘error’ can be considered as a unique moment of demystification, showing the material reality of technology.
