Smart City is defined as a holistic system that interacts with human and social capital using ICT-based solutions. Its objective is to achieve sustainable development and ... [+]

The enormous growth of the urban population that has occurred in the last decades and that is expected in the future, forces the cities to face new challenges. In this context, and with the appearance of new technological solutions, the concept of Smart City has emerged as an alternative that seeks to address the problems of the city with a comprehensive and connected vision. Currently, more than half of the population lives in urban areas, a figure which is expected to rise to 70 per cent by 2050. In addition, to date, 70% of global wealth is generated in cities.

It is for this reason that the budgetary policies and efforts of central governments in cities are increasing significantly in a large number of countries, as these are considered the basic engines of economic growth. If we focus on the European Union, currently more than 60% of the population lives in cities, generating 85% of the wealth according to the Green Paper on Urban Mobility (EC, 2007).... [-]

In an increasingly global economy, metropolitan areas are basic components of economic competition and growth. Capital, labor pools, knowledge, infrastructures, and their distribution within and across geographical space play a major role in the economic development and prosperity of a metropolitan area.

As highlighted by the Economist, a report from the American think-tank Brookings Institution shows that “the world's largest 300 metropolitan economies account for 19% of the global population and almost half the world's GDP. In the past decade, incomes and jobs tended to grow faster in these urban areas than their national averages”.... [-]

Design is experiencing a time of strong momentum and growth. The rapid evolution of production methods and ways of living require more and more adaptability and innovation. Anticipating and stimulating change have become main factors effecting competitiveness, being an engine for change and effecting contemporary economies. Traditional disciplinary boundaries have been overwhelmed by the need for greater interaction, ability to work in groups and the transfer of technology. Designers are now required to know new design skills and ways of information sharing, as well as have improved ability to listen to the needs of clients. On the other hand, it provides designers with new opportunities to draw on the wealth of traditional knowledge but yet without formal conditions or style obligations. Even when applied to interior architecture, the designer must be able to make use of new skills to delineate separated professions, those typical of the architecture.... [-]

We live in a world of cities, and our planet is increasingly urban. Cities are the new engines of the global economy, and at the same time, they can be the main actors to face the challenges of climate change and fight against inequality and poverty. If in the past we lived through stages in which the world was organized by empires and then by nation-states, in the future we will live increasingly in a world of cities, in a world of SuperCities.

We are living an unprecedented "digital revolution" at the confluence of 4 megatrends that are cloud computing, mobile devices, social networks and intelligence applied to "Big Data". We have never had more computing capacity or easier access to information, or better physical and digital communication options and this is changing the way people live, work, have fun, learn and relate. Politics, the economy, society, and of course cities are also changing, which today enjoy opportunities that previously didn’t exist.... [-]
