Design Thinking & The City

Design Thinking & The City

“The trouble of our times is that the future is not what it used to be” (Paul Valery)
If we believe that the recent economic downturn was not just another cyclical event but the kickstart of a Great Reset (Richard Florida) and if we believe that in the 21st century cities will be the hotspots for technological, social and eco-innovation than what is truly needed is a Big rethink of the composition, management and design of our cities. Design Thinking is a user-oriented approach that aims to systematically rethink the role and design of cities. In this blog I will regularly post my ideas and the work of our Think Tank Stadslab European Urban Design Laboratory, which aim to contribute to the challenging goal to make our cities future proof.
