Placemaking. What are the Must-Have Facilities of the Future City?

#Foresight session #Transformation of Urban Environment and Housing
02 July
13:00–14:00
Orion Hall
Citizens’ lifestyles will transform dramatically soon. The working environment no longer needs to house employees in offices. Instead, more and more companies are shifting towards a hybrid structure of remote work and working facilities. The growing number of digital nomads pushes city planners and place-makers to reevaluate the very process of urban planning as the job market evolves along with the growth of digital and AI applications. More and more people have been able to switch to working in the creative and service economy and green spaces and outdoor sports areas and playgrounds have become infrastructural normalcies. Which values and needs of the citizens will define public spaces? A mall, museums, universities, sports centers, concert halls, parks, boulevards, boardwalks – which places will become attraction points for locals and tourists? Which places will preserve local identity and still be able to shape new experiences?
  • How did the idea of “must-have” public spaces evolve? What criteria allows us to define an urban public space’s value?
  • What tools and research are necessary to make new places?
  • Can place become an anchor in an increasingly digital world?
