ONLINE | A City is Not a Computer: A Book Launch and Panel
Online | Zoom
Join New School faculty and METRO board president, Shannon Mattern for this conversation with Ever Bussey, Trevor Owens, Everest Pipkin, and Jasmine McNealy inspired by Shannon’s new book A City is Not a Computer: Other Urban Intelligences (Princeton University Press):
A City Is Not a Computer reveals how cities encompass myriad forms of local and indigenous intelligences and knowledge institutions, arguing that these resources are a vital supplement and corrective to increasingly prevalent algorithmic models. Incorporating insights from urban studies, data science, and media and information studies, Mattern offers a visionary new approach to urban planning and design.
