The SENSEable City

More on cities that can feel, the SENSEable City

The increasing deployment of sensors and hand-held electronics in recent years is allowing a new approach to the study of the built environment. The way we describe and understand cities is being radically transformed – alongside the tools we use to design them and impact on their physical structure.

Studying these changes from a critical point of view and anticipating them is the goal of the SENSEable City Laboratory, a new research initiative at MIT. Carlo Ratti directs the Lab, which explores the “real-time city” by studying the way sensors and electronics relate to the built environment
