Abstract

The Hackable City (normative definition): In a hackable city, new media technologies are employed to open up urban institutions and infrastructures to systemic change, in the public interest. It combines top-down smart-city technologies with bottom-up ‘smart citizen’ initiatives.
The Hackable City (research project): The goal of this research project is to explore the opportunities, as well as challenges, created by the rise of new media technologies for an open, democratic process of collaborative citymaking. How can citizens, design professionals, local government institutions and others employ digital media platforms in collaborative processes of urban planning, management and social organization, to contribute to a livable and resilient city, with a strong social fabric?
