Designing Urban Experience
Research group chaired by Prof. dr. Caroline Nevejan, AISSR, University of Amsterdam
Cities are becoming complex systems in which design is playing new important roles. Trade-offs for Trust and truth are shifting because we are bearing witness to each other in new ways, due to the different technologies that format our presence. Rhythm appears to be fundamental in enhancing trust between residents in city neighbourhoods and is core to our sensorial perception and to our ability to communicate; unfortunately, technology design does not take this into account. Prof. dr. Caroline Nevejan's chair "Designing Urban Experience" at the University of Amsterdam focuses on an understanding of, and a design of, urban experience as a shared reflection on the many sensations and emotions a city offers.
