What happens when the client is a citizen within an urban development? How might they apply modern technology to improve their environment? How might their ideal form of mobility look for example? How will they buy groceries in their ideal city? What level of security and privacy they are looking for and what resources will they find acceptable? All these questions and more were addressed by the Civic City project, a collaboration between NPK Design, LUSTlab and info.nl together with the citizens of Woensel West in Eindhoven
“Our version of the ‘Smart City’, with the difference being that technology is not a goal but a means, and not the industry but the public is in the driver seat” www.civiccity.nl
