Cities are among the greatest accomplishments of mankind - but they have not quite learned to respond to the needs of their inhabitants yet. Gerhard Schmitt believes that the communication between the city of the future and its people should be bi-directional. He reveals some approaches to make this possible, and interleaves his research with numerous, fascinating examples from people shaping their cities around the world.
About Gerhard Schmitt
Gerhard Schmitt sees Responsive Cities as the new frontier in human settlement. Responsive Cities engage residents and prospective citizens from the very beginning in the planning and management of their habitat, based on Smart City technology. He stands firmly on the point that that citizens are the ones who know most about their habitat and therefore must sit at the table where decisions are made.
