Virtual Event, Shannon Mattern at The New SchoolA City is Not a Computer

 

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.

 

Presented by the Code As Liberal Art department at Eugene Lang College and the Metropolitan New York Library Council.
