A few things happening over at the building centre and Arups - any interest?

Digital Cities looks at how digital technology helps us understand and improve the planning and experience of our city. It looks at the impact on movement in cities: how communication and information technologies enhance a person´s experience of place; how people interpret cities with the use of technology; and how mapping influences the design and planning of cities. It also discusses some of the 'big brother' issues such as privacy and security.

The exhibition is presented through a number of research and commercial projects which use technology to provide planning and design and communication tool for the city. It contains live and interactive presentations in a number of digital media, showcasing work by Aedas, atmos, BT, Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, Cityware, Colin Buchanan, Farrells, GMJ, Hank Haeusler, Intelligent Space, Minimaforms, Ordnance Survey, Proboscis, SENSEable, Smartslab, Space Syntax, UCL, Zmapping
