"City Index. Narration>City>New technologies" Andonopoulou Elena, Linardou Olga, Setaki Fotini

This theoretical study will be the subject of the organization of the European Architecture Students’ Assembly (EASA) meeting in the city of Elefsina during the summer of 2007, which will deal with city topics and information management.

 

The problematic involves [a] the methods of collection and classification of information included in the city and [b] how narrative the city can become in order to disseminate in an interactive manner its contents and activate the city-dweller or visitor to participate, act and provide feedback for the urban body.

 

 Reference is being made to the change in the way of perception of contemporary city. Then several of the new trends with regard to information management are presented, on account of the evolution of the participatory media such as interactive and collaborative mapping, blog and wiki as means of allowing the citizen to shape news and opinions. Reference is also made to the ubiquitous computing, namely the dissemination of technology in the natural environment, aiming at facilitation of everyday life.

 

Six projects, investigation programs of universities and other bodies directly involved with information management as well as the changing of the city to a narrative and interactive field through the use of new technologies are analyzed.
