Martijn de Waal (The Mobile City)
Journalist and researcher Martijn de Waal is one of the founders of The Mobile City, an independent research group that investigates the influence of digital media technologies on urban life, and the implications for urban design.
The Mobile City explores the ways digital media technologies shape urban life. How is urban life changing, and what are the main challenges and opportunities? Furthermore, the collective aims to bring these insights back to urban design. How can cities become better and more interesting places to live in? The Mobile City collaborates with institutions, organizations and individuals from various disciplines who share an interest in these issues.
Martijn de Waal will speak during the Blogging the City afternoon program.
