The Mediated City research programme is a wide ranging multi-disciplinary consideration of the influence of new and old technologies and medias on the city: its experience, design, and representation. In a changing context of smart technologies, new social and private medias and global and local linking of peoples and places in and across cities, the nature of the urban experience is in flux. What consequences these changes have is open to debate. In an attempt to understand the history of how technologies and medias have altered the urban condition – with a view to designing and shaping its future – the Mediated City Research Programme offers various platforms for architects, artist, technologists, filmmakers, photographers and urban planners to debate and explore this future.
To this end the programme has set up a series of international conferences, related workshops and an associated publication series:
