Our cities are "smart" and getting smarter as information processing capability is embedded throughout more and more of our urban infrastructure. The new publication Sentient City: Ubiquitous Computing, Architecture, and the Future of Urban Space (MIT Press) explores the experience of living in a city that can remember, correlate, and anticipate. To mark the publication of this remarkable collection of case studies and essays, V2_ invited media researcher Martijn de Waal for a conversation on the future of urban space with artist, architect and editor of Sentient City Mark Shepard. The conversation will be moderated by urban mobile media expert Michiel de Lange.

The Sentient City book launch is organized in close collaboration with the International Design Seminar (InDeSem/11: Losing Ground) of Delft University of Technology.
