Abstract

Concerns over how we plan and manage urban development have grown as a result of unpredictable and rapid conditional changes in postmodern cities. This chapter explores the shifting contexts of urban environments which change in an increasingly frequent and dynamic manner. These changes can be understood through the lens of real-time interactions between citizens, planning processes and designers, supported through the use of ICT. We argue for the recognition that urban change will happen in an unpredictable way, and that such interactions can be regarded as extremely valuable information to any urban manager. The approach suggested by the research concerns the scale of interventions in the building environment and the exploration of tools to facilitate public engagement and awareness of urban complexity.
