Environments by Design

Health, Wellbeing and Place
R. Hanley
Emeritus Professor, City Tech, CUNY
7:15 am - 8:30 am


The keynote by Richard Hanley covers questions of smart technologies and the city. It will ask multiple questions:

What is changing cities?
The development of information and communication technologies.
The increasing pressures of climate change and sea-level rise.
The acceleration of globalization.

What are the effects of these changes on cities?
Social, Geographic, Economic, Environmental
What have been some responses to these effects?

Can Smart Cities address the issues of culture, climate?
In particular, can it do this in relation to the design of cities in a changing world
Can Smart Cities, through the use of ICTs, lead in what is called the low-carbon transition?

To answer these questions it is necessary to look at several problems, clarify definitions and ask particular questions around issues such as:

The Smart City-in-a-Box vs Smart City Transition
Expert imposed solutions vs public participation
Urban data: proprietary vs open access approaches
Urban systems that can be made “smart:” education; mobility; energy; water; waste; governance; commerce and more.


Richard E Hanley is Emeritus Professor of English, the founding editor of the Journal of Urban Technology, the Board Chair of the CUNY Institute for Urban Systems (CIUS), and the Director of City Tech’s Center for the Study of the Brooklyn Waterfront.
