Is our understanding of urban infrastructure changing? Do we need to move beyond discussions about 'smart cities' and digital innovation? What pathways exist for the city of the future? Watch our video to find out more:

What connections, structures and relationships enable liveable cities? What are the multifarious connections between urban habitats, the built environment and different aspects of the ‘living city’ as a structural and ecological assemblage?

It seeks to reflect on the material environments of cities and also different forms of social, cultural and ecological complexity.
