Contemporary cities could be considered vibrant organisms of places and communities, of data and information, of sensors and actuators, of actions and reactions generated by people and environment both. Cities must be more responsive to our behavioral changes, enabling devices for enhancing our
contemporary life. We would be able to build a more efficient urban environment, able to sense, to understand and to act everyday and for everyone.
In the post-city age and beyond the smart city, Augmented City is an emerging paradigm that perceives the demands of more networked, knowledge-based and creative society, that answers to the global change by a new circular metabolism.
