Have you ever had a New Year’s resolution?
Have you had the same resolution for several years? Have you succeeded in achieving your goals that were set on Jan 1st? It is not trivial to achieve sustainable change, however there are novel ways to foster success through purposefully designed urban spaces. Can our cities be built to feel, understand, and care? Yes! Already today we have sensors to read behavioral information, i.e. feel. We have big data analytics to classify various behavioral patterns, i.e. understand. And we can design interactive real-time solutions to empower sustainable change for better, i.e. care. Transformation is fundamentally essential for our evolution.
