Smart City: cities of the future. An exhibition-event at Superstudio Più.
From April 16th – May 12th 2018 Superstudio Più hosts the exhibition “Smart City: Materials, Technology & People”.
Conceived and organized by Material ConneXion® Italia, cured by the architect Giulio Ceppi and sponsored by the Municipality of Milan, the exhibition aims to stimulate ideas and debates on the theme of the smart city model that we frequently talk about, taking on a new point of view: this time, in fact, the starting point are the inhabitants or “smart citizens“, tomorrow’s active citizens, engines of change in the cities of the future to meet the challenges dictated by the ongoing global transformations.
Still on the subject of innovation, there will also be the presence of prestigious names such as PUMA and the MIT Design Lab, an interdisciplinary research laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, which together present the latest innovations on research in the field of biodesign.
The exhibition’s concept has been developed starting from the analysis of the global challenges that all of us have in common as inhabitants of the same Planet: from the need for new approaches to preserve the ecosystem to revolutionary themes such as crowdfunding, sharing economy and 3D printing; from the security and protection of data and people to the need to feed the population and redesign the city-country relationship, to the management of the progressive increase in the world average age and a sustainable welfare. If the direction towards which we are going, among sensor networks and databases, energy consumption and complex infrastructures, is to become digital citizens in increasingly connected metropolises, then how do our needs and the urban scenarios in which we live evolve? The exhibition becomes a point of reference to reflect at 360° on how we will live in a not so distant future as citizens who do not respond only to external inputs, but become the protagonists of the process of collecting and sharing data.
Walking through the various expositive modules, the public will have the chance to discover material and technological solutions in the various areas that characterize the Smart Cities and within which the most significant changes take place.
In parallel and throughout this period, a series of meetings, workshops, conferences and events have been scheduled. So, come to visit Smart City at Superstudio: a new era of living begins!
