The emerging technologies including IoT are changing architecture, urban design and city planning professions in the post-cyber space era. Unlike cyberspace, a tabula rasa of virtual reality, the IoT and pervasive computing create a new paradigm of place making by integrating the physical and digital world, in which proximity, urban context, and physical form of cities are crucial. The design of smart city consists of smart homes, urban spaces and infrastructure systems that are situational, responsive and resilient to future changes.

“Repairing Lujiazui” is an experimental project proposed in the context of Shanghai’s new policy of urban revitalization. Innovative urban design is to be conducted through examining the scale, functions and forms of the downtown urban space. “Digital Commons Lujiazui” explores how digital and sensing technologies and smart materials can be applied to analyzing, simulating and embedding augmented environment to cities, and question contemporary meanings of public space and how they fundamentally change human sensing and experiencing cities.

The Smart City Technology Workshop is jointly organized by the Eco Urban Lab of Georgia Institute of Technology and Tongji University in Shanghai
