Following theMay 7th Internet of Things Workshop at the Staalvilla, Archis/Volume, VURB, Caro van Dijk and Alexander Zeh will organize the second iteration with the explicit goal of creating viable and functional prototypes for the city that research how you can instill a sense of co-ownership over a public territory.
The results of this workshop will then be presented and discussed widely at PICNIC 2011, which will take place between September 14-16 at the NDSM-werf in Amsterdam with the theme of Urban Futures. The three-day festival will explore globalization and its impact on our cities, our society and our lives.
This workshop is kindly supported by Pachube, Archis and the Waag Society.
