The City as a Computing Platform

Part of the 2011 TEDxPhilly lectures on “The City”, Youngjin Yoo, Director of the Center for Design+Innovation at Temple University discusses urban information architecture systems.

Yoo considers cities as the most exciting, complex and compelling human-made objects and now generative design can convert cities in computing platforms because all components are now in place. Urban information architecture systems can offer solutions to city problems alongside with advancements in city planning and the construction of buildings and other infrastructure.
